Desert Island Texts

The Chief Rabbi’s seven favourite verses in Tanakh

On Sunday 4th March 2012, the Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks delivered the opening keynote address at the London School of Jewish Studies’ Tanach Day. Interviewed by Dr Rafi Zarum, the Chief Rabbi discussed his seven favourite verses in Tanach, the reasons for his choice and the wider lessons that can be drawn from them. And because it was Desert Island Texts, the session also featured some examples of some of the Chief Rabbi’s favourite musical pieces.
