Rav Daniel Wolf [YHE '75] taught at Yeshivat Har Etzion for nearly 35 years [1983-2017]. He received his Semicha from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, his Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Yeshiva University and an M.Sc. degree in Operations Research from Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. He also conducts seminars and private consultations helping (needy and other) Israeli families manage their finances, especially mortgages. Rav Wolf has combined his unique economics and halachic expertise to develop a special perspective on ribbit and other financial-halachic issues. Consequently he is available for halakhic consultations for ribbit issues in legal contracts. Rav Wolf has also developed a special curriculla for teaching gemara, including a multi-year program teaching central topics of the talmud. In two areas (Seder Nashim and Taharot) his students have written and published (under his supervision and guidance) well received books based on those lectures, Mincha LeAharon, and Mincha Tehora, respectively. Taharot is a specialty not generally learned in yeshivot and Rav Wolf has delved into this area and has developed an exceptional forte in this challenging area.
