It was a great zechut to welcome over 100 Society of Patrons Members to a special reception featuring Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, motzaei Shabbat, November 7. SOP members received a signed copy of his new book, Not in God’s Name: Confronting Religious Violence, heard Rabbi Sacks speak on the importance of Jewish education and met him personally.
Following the reception, SOP members joined nearly 1,000 community members who attended the public lecture with Rabbi Sacks at KINS.
