On May 23, 2002 The Christian Science Monitor featured an article on the interfaith work of Rabbi Arnold Resnicoff. "After 28 years in the military - which took him from Vietnam to the top job of Command Chaplain for all US forces in Europe - the retired Navy captain is now working to increase understanding between faiths in the United States... Rabbi Resnicoff became national director for interreligious affairs for the American Jewish Committee shortly after Sept. 11... With religious allegiances figuring more prominently in today's conflicts, it's essential, he believes, to develop genuine skills for relating to one another and to bring more perceptiveness to understanding religious tensions."
