RIP Chief Rabbi Sacks

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, Baron Sacks of Aldgate, former Chief Rabbi of the United Kingdom, passed away this Shabbat at age 72.

The memory of the righteous is a blessing.

I was fortunate to hear Rabbi Sacks preach at a joyous Friday night service in 2018.

I once had the privilege of praying with Rabbi Steinsaltz at a Friday evening service. (I won't say how many decades ago, but his famous white beard was red back then.)

The memory of the righteous is a blessing.
From now on I'll avoid attending services with great Torah scholars.
