Community of Faith

For the 125th anniversary of the United Synagogue, during his time as Chief Rabbi, Jonathan Sacks wrote a new evaluation of the role of the synagogue in Jewish life today. In it he explores the choices faced by religious leadership in the modern world, and the ways in which the synagogue embodies a living community of faith.

His recent book Faith in the Future, described by The Times as ‘one of the most significant declarations made by a religious leader in this country for many years’, analysed the importance of community, morality and daith in the future of Western societies. Community of Faith applies these themes to the Jewish situation, and suggests ways in which the synagogue can be renewed as a centre of meaning and belonging.
