Adrian Wolff was born in London, and after graduating BA Honours in Economics from the University of Cape Town, he immigrated to Israel. He worked in the field of economics and marketing.  He served in the Israel Defense Forces rising to the rank of major. Having an exhaustive interest in history since childhood, he returned to academic life, then qualified the official Israeli Tourist Guide course which became the impetus to further study and research the subject of the History of Israel, including a study of the Bible. He is the author of A Chronology of Israel.

When not traveling, lecturing or reading Adrian Wolff can be found playing the clarinet, or participating in national cycling activities, or being the general handyman at home.
He is the Israel co-coordinator of an annual One-to-One charity bicycle ride around the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) which raises money for Israel’s Victims of Terror and Disadvantaged Youth.

Adrian is an ESRA volunteer area distributors, distributing the bi-monthy ESRA MAGAZINE to the volunteer postpersons in Ramat Hasharon.

He is married with two daughters and two grandsons.
