WILLY WOLFF (1927-2020)
The most unlikely Rabbi in the world, the inspiring and charming Willy Wolff, passed away on July 8th, 2020, aged 93. I am grateful for all the time we have spent together, for the different worlds he opened, for his wisdom and his smile and for what we call „Lebensfreude“, a deep joy for life.
