As part of his farewell tour, the chief rabbi of the UK, Lord Jonathan Sacks, visited Israel recently. During his visit he gave a lecture at Tel Hai College, titled “The 21st Century Challenge for Jews and Israel,” that touched on anti-Semitism, the top challenge facing Jews, in his opinion. “Today we are living through a new anti-Semitism,” he said. He expounded by saying that Anti-Semitism is anti-Zionism; it’s epicenter is in the Middle East rather than Europe and it has gained an increasing amount of legitimization. He also pointed to the senselessness of the world’s imbalanced diplomatic assault on the Jewish state.

The chief rabbi announced in 2010 that he would be leaving his post in September of this year.
