Former Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Executive Chairman of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change

“I am deeply distressed and sad at the news of the passing of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks. Jonathan was a wonderful friend, a beloved mentor, a philosopher of extraordinary insight and of course a religious leader respected well beyond the Jewish community and well beyond the shores of Britain. His influence was vast and his reach immense. A brilliant speaker and thinker he had the rarest of gifts - expressing complex ideas in the simplest of terms. A man of huge intellectual stature but with the warmest human spirit. My heart goes out to Elaine, his children and wider family and the Jewish community. He will be deeply mourned.”
