5777 (2016-2017)

Welcome to the Covenant & Conversation essays for the Jewish year 5777 (2016- 2017). As he did each year, Rabbi Sacks wrote an essay for every parsha, exploring profound ideas within the Torah and applying them to our lives today, weaving philosophy, psychology, and science to further elaborate upon his themes.

The majority of essays shared this year were repeats from previous years, as this year Rabbi Sacks also began the project of crafting his own translations of the Chumash, now available here.
