    The world has lost a wonderful wise and inspiring mamber of our community-such a loss- I remember his “thought for the day” slot on the radio 4 today programme always had a profound effect on the presenters and you could hear it in their response to his profound words

    Countess individuals and families, and we amongst them, were saddened by the news of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks’ death. We join the Sacks family, the Rabbi’s friends, colleagues and avid students and admirers in mourning the loss of such an extraordinary Torah leader of global reputation. His scope of knowledge coupled by his tender and humanistic sensitivity to the needs of our generation were articulately conveyed and effectively communicated to a wide and receptive audiences. We pay homage to this giant and eloquent conveyor of ethics and morality whose words still echo in the halls of governments and in the chambers of human hearts throughout the world.
    Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, of blessed memory, was a beacon faith and integrity whose flame was extinguished but whose light will shine on.
    May his soul be bound with the sanctified souls of the eternally living.
