About this product
- DescriptionChaim Bermant called him far and away the greatest Chief Rabbi Britain has had . Margaret Thatcher described him as one of the most remarkable spiritual leaders of the 20th century . And Jonathan Sacks lauded him as a prince of God in our midst . From his first (and controversial) ministerial appointment, as a 20-year-old German refugee, to his elevation to the peerage, Immanuel Jakobovits spoke out fearlessly for the values of justice, compassion, morality and moderation that characterized his faith and moulded his rabbinate. This biography offers a kaleidoscope of his life and achievements as mirrored in his writings, speeches and activities, draws on his private papers and scrapbooks, and includes previously unpublished autobiographical chapters and specially written contributions by Nobel Peace Laureate Elie Wiesel and British Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks. The book marks the establishment of Beit Harav Jakobovits for the Study of Philosophy, Ethics and Jewish Thought at Bar-Ilan University, Israel.
