Jewish Community and Activities
Attorney David A. Wolf is a proud member of the Jacksonville Florida Jewish community. Born and raised in Miami, David grew up in a large Jewish community. Just three miles down the street and just two years his junior, Robin Bloom grew up in the same community. In 1995, David Wolf married Robin Bloom - his high school classmate, lunch mate, and brief girlfriend from 1982. The wedding was held at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida. They were married by the Senior Rabbi from Temple Beth Am, the synagogue where they attended religious school. In 1998, the Wolfs moved to Jacksonville, Florida where they immediately became a part of the smaller but strong Jewish community. The Jacksonville Jewish community welcomed the Wolfs with open arms. In addition, the Wolfs felt welcome by family members who resided in the area, friends from college, fraternity / sorority members from college, and a host of other wonderful people who called First Coast their home.
The Jacksonville Jewish Community Allliance (JCA) is a non-profit organization located in the Beauclerc / San Jose part of Jacksonville, Florida. It is the home to a top rated pre-school, after-school program, kindergarten, and summer camp. It also has programs year round for all ages. It is a family-oriented community based facility that is open to all. From aquatics to fitness to ceramics and all things in between and beyond, the Jacksonville Jewish Community Alliance is a wonderful place to exercise, learn, and be around wonderful members, staff, and volunteers. Once their daughter began attending the Michele Block Gan Yeladim Pre-School, Robin became a volunteer and eventually was appointed the Co-Chair of the Early Education Committee.
The Wolf children (Megan and Matthew) attended the JCA Pre-School, a place where they both met their first friends and achieved a number of early milestones including the skills of reading, writing, and basic math. The education received by the Wolf children at the JCA Pre-School was truly amazing and formed a strong foundation for their academic endeavors through elementary school, middle school, and now high school.
Robin later became employed at the JCA at the Director of the J Institute which provided a wide array of adult programs both at the faculty and outside of the facility. From bingo to kayaking and a whole host of other activities, Robin was pivotal in being part of the first few years of this brand new concept.
David was appointed to the Jacksonville Jewish Community Alliance (JCA) Board in 2009. In 2010, he was recognized with the JCA New Leadership Award for his work as a Board Member and Volunteer. David was later appointed to serve on the Executive Committee as Treasurer where he oversaw a multi-million dollar budget. He held this position for 3 years (2012 - 2015) and was quite proud of the continued financial strength and capital projects completed during this time period.
In 2014, David was awarded the Esther Leah Ritz Emerging Leadership Award. He attended the Jewish Community Center Biennial held in San Diego, California where he trained with other award recipients from across the United States and Canada.
In 2015, David was appointed to serve as Secretary on the Board of Directors for the Jacksonville Jewish Community Alliance.
There is a well known Yiddish word - Mensch - which has two definitions: human being and a person of integrity and honor. When one person refers to another person as a mensch, it is the one of the highest forms of a compliment. As noted in Wikipedia, "The key to being 'a real mensch' is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible, decorous."
David A. Wolf strives to do his best every day for his clients and community. To be called or referred to as a mensch is something achieved through effort, consistency, sincerity, integrity, and a dedicated work effort. From the beginning of a case through its end, David A. Wolf keeps the virtues of a mensch in mind and as a guidepost to his mindset and efforts on behalf of his well-deserving clients.
