So, it was not bad enough that Lord Sacks, or Rabbi Sacks (or however you wish to call him,) said some other questionable things, say, about Conservative Judaism in 1995 when he called them “intellectual thieves” and accused them as “severing links with the faith of their ancestors”. Or, in 1997, when he mouthed off about Rabbi Hugo Gryn, calling the Reform leader and Auschwitz survivor “among those who destroy the faith“. Or the JFS #fail in 2009 when Sacks took the enviable position of arguing that a Jewish child should not be admitted to a Jewish school because he was not Jewish enough.
…which only leads me to conclude that the time has come for the institution of Chief Rabbi to be retired – along with its current office holder. Why wait until 2013?
