Congratulations to Templeton Prize winner Lord Sacks

Board  President Jonathan Arkush today paid tribute to the 2016 Templeton Prize winner Lord Sacks.

 He said:  “The Templeton Prize honours a person who has made an exceptional contribution to affirming life’s spiritual dimension. There can be no more deserving recipient than Lord Sacks who as Chief Rabbi for 22 years provided an inspirational moral and ethical voice for both the Jewish and wider community.  His scholarship, his compassion and his efforts to bring communities together have impact worldwide. Lord Sacks is an exceptionally gifted communicator and whenever we hear him speak, we stand taller.”
