The Rabbi Sacks Legacy announces the launch of the second cohort of the Sacks Scholars, a programme designed to delve deeply into the inspirational teachings of Rabbi Sacks and support those bringing his message to communities around the world.

Building upon the resounding success of its initial cohort, this immersive programme brings together senior educators, academics, and communal leaders from across the globe who have been selected through a robust nomination and interview process.

The Scholars – who hail from the US, the UK, Israel, Australia, Canada, South Africa and Mexico – will gather for a retreat in Jerusalem and gain exclusive access to prominent Israel-based leaders while building a strong cohort-based community. They will also engage in monthly online seminars facilitated by outstanding leaders, and will also be offered personalised mentorship opportunities.

Throughout the programme each Scholar will design and implement a project that brings Rabbi Sacks’ insights to new audiences and communities worldwide.
