We are broken-hearted to learn of the passing of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks over Shabbat.
The world has lost one of the great Jewish leaders of our time - and a truly kind and gentle soul. At the core of his vast contributions to public life and discourse was his remarkable ability to create and communicate a compelling narrative, rooted in Torah and Jewish law, of tolerance, compassion and understanding.
Rabbi Sacks was a good friend to UJA and we were honored to welcome him many times. On every occasion he showed us a better way to navigate the complexities of our world and pathways to deeper insight.
Baruch Dayan Emet and may his memory be for a blessing.
