Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to international religious leader, moral philosopher and author Rabbi Sacks. 25/03/2020
Rabbi Sacks was the Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth for 22 years, and has written books that have been formative for many including ‘The Dignity of Difference’ and ‘Not in God’s Name’. His most recent book is called ‘Morality: Restoring the Common Good in Divided Times.’
In this episode he speaks about the twin threads of his life in religious leadership and academic moral philosophy, and how those two things have worked together, what his own religious practice looks like, and why the holocaust makes him doubt humans but not God.
