Rabbi Recognizes NJ State Trooper Who Pulled Him Over As Long Lost Friend From Middle School

Rabbi Shloime Greenwald and New Jersey State Trooper David Kohn hadn't seen each other for 22 years.

That was until last Wednesday, when the trooper pulled a car over for speeding on the NJ Turnpike -- and Greenwald was in the passenger's seat.

Greenwald and a coworker were heading home to Crown Heights from Delaware when Kohn sounded his sirens and stopped them for speeding on the northbound side of the highway in Mount Laurel, New Jersey State Police told Daily Voice.

Kohn asked the driver for his license and registration, and immediately recognized the man in the passenger's seat as Greenwald, he said.

“After looking at the names, he removed his face mask and asked, ‘do you recognize me?'” the rabbi told COLLIVE.

He certainly did.

The two attended Hebrew Academy Orange County in Huntington Beach, California, together, and were best friends until eighth grade, COLLIVE says.

Greenwald called his father, Peretz Greenwald -- who was a teacher at the California day school -- put him on the phone with Kohn.

Greenwald allegedly got off without a ticket, and instead, the phone number of his long-lost friend.
