The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2018


Jonathan Sacks

Author and theologian

Described by HRH Prince Charles as “a light unto this nation” and by former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as “an intellectual giant," former British Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks now walks the global stage as one of the most eloquent representatives of Judaism and the Jewish faith. Since he stepped down from the chief rabbi's post in 2013 – a position he held for 22 years – Sacks has held a number of professorships at several academic institutions including Yeshiva University and King’s College London. In addition to his writing and lecturing, he currently serves as the Ingeborg and Ira Rennert Global Distinguished Professor at New York University. The holder of 17 honorary doctorates, Rabbi Sacks was knighted by Her Majesty The Queen in 2005 and made a Life Peer, taking his seat in the British House of Lords in October 2009.
