The Art of Dignifying Difference: The Thought of Jonathan Sacks

The late lamented Jonathan Sacks z”l, Chief Rabbi of Great Britain and the Commonwealth, who was awarded a life peerage to the House of Lords, ensured that British Jewry punched above its weight on the world scene for over 30 years. But what exactly was Rabbi Sacks’s contribution to Jewish thought? And how did he manage to get into trouble with those both to his nominal right and left? Find out as we delve into his work and discover the theological commitments behind the thought of one of the most erudite exponents of a faith-based world view in recent times.
