Rabbi Lord Sacks was a voice of wisdom and humanity. An exceptional Jewish leader who related faith and ethics to real world issues.
He gave a powerful yet accessible language to faith in public life. He had deep commitment to faith, reason and human relations. He inspired many interfaith initiatives.
He was a towering figure, a thinker of extraordinary insight and a religious leader respected well beyond the Jewish community. His wisdom, prolific authorship of works and leadership will be missed.
“God does not want us to understand the suffering of the innocent but to fight for a world in which the innocent no longer suffer.” – Rabbi Jonathan Sacks
I express my condolences on the passing away of former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks.
