Synopsis
William Wolff was born in Berlin, carries a British passport and lives in a bungalow near London. Now nearly 90, he still works as State Rabbi in north-eastern Germany. His regular midweek commute takes him from Heathrow to Hamburg, and on to his Jewish communities in Schwerin and Rostock. After Saturday services, it's back home, unless he's visiting relatives in Jerusalem, going on a fasting retreat or placing a bet at Royal Ascot. Willy Wolff says, "life has to be fun".
RABBI WOLFF is not only entertaining, but also eye-opening and inspiring. With humour and charm, it gives an honest, intimate insight into the world of Judaism.
