Rabbi Sacks And The Community We Built Together


The United Synagogue, founded in 1870, comprises over 60 local communities in the UK plus vital elements of Jewish communal infrastructure supported by a central office. The Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of Great Britain and the Commonwealth is the spiritual head of our communities.

In this book, family members along with colleagues from his rabbinate and teams during that time share impactiful thoughts, stories and teachings from the community we built together which continues to thrive today.

Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks served as Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the UK and commonwealth from 1991-2013, during which time his expositions of Judaism and community in particular helped him to become one of the most influential rabbinic figures globally.

“So many friends and colleagues have opened their hearts and joined in making this a very special tribute.” Lady Elaine Sacks

Family members and colleagues of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks from the UK as well as team members from his tenure as Chief Rabbi have joined to produce a new book of many original articles, photos, stories and Torah teaching to pay their tribute to Rabbi Sacks’ impact as Chief Rabbi and perpetuate that legacy – the community we built together.

In particular, the book contains a Foreword from Lady Elaine Sacks, an Introduction from Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, recollections from Rabbi Sacks’ family and contributions from the Dayanim of the London Beth Din.
