On July 8, 2005 Cleveland Jewish News reported, "The U.S. Air Force secretary named a rabbi as a special assistant in response to charges of proselytizing at the Air Force Academy. Rabbi Arnold Resnicoff, a former U.S. Navy chaplain, was named to the post Monday. Resnicoff helped create a program at the Colorado Springs campus to deal with religious tolerance. The school has been criticized in recent months for creating an uncomfortable climate for religious minorities, including Jewish cadets, who said they felt pressure to choose their military duties over expressing their religion."
