We are greatly saddened to hear of the passing of Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks z"l. To Lady Elaine, to their three children, to Rabbi Sacks’ entire family, we wish you all Chayim aruchim, long life.


Rabbi Sacks' life and work, and his legacy will continue to inspire us.

As the Talmud teaches us, "We do not erect memorials for the righteous, they are remembered through their words". May his memory be a blessing.


‘Never compromise your ideals. Never give in to defeat or despair. Never stop journeying merely because the way is long and hard. It always is’.

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks z"l 1948-2020.
