The Great Partnership

Religion and the Moral Sense

During his visit to New York in October 2011, the Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks delivered the third in a series of lectures sponsored by the New York University’s “Dialogues on the Global Civil Society”.

Entitled “The Great Partnership: Religion and the Moral Sense", the lecture focused on the extent to which a universal moral sense, capable of underpinning a global society, is either evolving or can be created. The Chief Rabbi explored the implications of a plurality of faiths and traditions in the world and how religious faiths can contribute to or stand in the way of global cooperation.

The Chief Rabbi was introduced by John Sexton, President of New York University and The Right Honourable Gordon Brown MP, New York University’s Inaugural Distinguished Global Leader in Residence and the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
