Britain’s Prince Charles expressed Monday his “mounting anxiety, at the apparent rise in anti-Semitism, along with other poisonous and debilitating forms of intolerance,” during a send-off for outgoing British Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks.

The Prince of Wales said: “Running throughout your time as chief rabbi has been that all-important principle of which this country has long been an exponent – the principle of tolerance.

“I sometimes fear not enough recognition is given to the role of the faith communities in the life of our country in promoting such a critical principle, and I join with you, in mounting anxiety, at the apparent rise in antisemitism, along with other poisonous and debilitating forms of intolerance.”

During his speech, the Prince described Lord Sacks as a “steadfast friend” and “valued adviser,” adding: “Your guidance on any given issue has never failed to be of practical value and deeply grounded in the kind of wisdom that is increasingly hard to come by.”

Lord Sacks is set to step down after 22 years as Britain’s chief rabbi later this year.
