Jewish Year 5779 (2018-2019)

Welcome to the Covenant & Conversation essays for the Hebrew year 5779 (September 2018- September 2019). 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, expertly weaving together strands of philosophy, psychology, and science, and contemporary events to further elaborate upon his themes. The majority of essays shared this year were repeats from previous years, due to the fact that at this point Rabbi Sacks was heavily the project of crafting his own translations of the Chumash, now available here.
