"In January 2021, the Jew­ish Book Coun­cil announced the win­ners of the 2020 Nation­al Jew­ish Book Awards, now in its sev­en­ti­eth year. The win­ners include Moral­i­ty: Restor­ing the Com­mon Good in Divid­ed Times by Rab­bi Jonathan Sacks (Basic Books), which was named the Everett Fam­i­ly Foun­da­tion Book of the Year.

Rab­bi Sacks’ final book draws on his own expe­ri­ences, as well as texts by Jew­ish philoso­phers and schol­ars, to illus­trate the impor­tance of chang­ing our world by shift­ing our focus to the col­lec­tive good. This book will help ground Sacks’ lega­cy as one of the great Jew­ish thinkers of the twen­ty-first century."
