Posthumous honour for Lord Sacks from Hebrew University

Former Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks has been awarded a posthumous honorary doctorate from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in recognition of his “lifelong dedication to the Jewish people”.

Sacks, a prolific author and public speaker who served as Britain’s chief rabbi from 1991 to 2013, had links to the university in his role as a visiting professor. The award was accepted by Sacks’ brother Eliot on his behalf.

Those who receive the honour are typically distinguished by academic leadership, creative achievement, or activities of notable benefit to humanity, the State of Israel, or the Jewish people, and recently included film director Quentin Tarantino.

Lady Elaine Sacks said: “It was both moving and inspiring to be present as the Hebrew University bestowed this honour in memory of my dear husband, acknowledging the impact his legacy continues to make. My family and I were deeply touched by this very meaningful gesture.”

Hebrew University President Prof Asher Cohen said: “Leaders inspire. They show us the way forward and light up the path for those who follow.”
