This week we remember Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, a tremendous spiritual leader of our time, who passed away on November 7.

Rabbi Sacks is perhaps best known as the former Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth (UK), a role in which he served for 22 years, as well as for his numerous books and lectures. Join us this week as we discuss his life and the incredible example he set for us all.

If you’re not familiar with Rabbi Sacks’ work, or you just want to hear some of his words of wisdom, I suggest checking out some of these short videos:

On Doubt
On Daily Life
On Finding Purpose
On a Responsible Life

I also highly recommend one of my favorites of his recent talks, An Unforgiving Age.
