He was the founding Executive Chairman of YU’s Orthodox Caucus, and a moving force behind the RCA Pre-Nuptial Agreement to resolve the plight of women who are unable to obtain a religious divorce. His weblog, My Obiter Dicta, is a well known forum for the discussion of religious and political issues facing Judaism and the Jewish People, in Israel and abroad. More recently, he has begun blogging at The Times of Israel.Rabbi Dr. Woolf is a much sought after lecturer, addressing a broad swath of issues and topics, of both historical and contemporary interest. Proficient in five languages (English, Hebrew, French, Italian, German), he has lectured throughout Israel, the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Kipa).","teacherPhotoURL_o":"https:\/\/cdnyutorah.cachefly.net\/_images\/roshei_yeshiva\/jeffrey_woolf_o.jpg?rev=201805017-2000003816"}],"shiurURL":"\/2013\/16003\/800711.MP3","shiurTeacherFullName":"Rabbi
