Following Rabbi Sacks’ untimely passing in November 2020, The Sacks Conversation was established as an annual event in his memory. The 2021 inaugural conversation was held at Spencer House, London, with former UK Prime Minister, the Rt Hon. Tony Blair, and it also marked the book launch for The Power of Ideas, a collection of powerful speeches and broadcasts by Rabbi Sacks.

On Tuesday 13th September 2022, The second annual Sacks Conversation took place at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem, Israel, between President Isaac Herzog and Dr. Erica Brown, Director of the Sacks-Herenstein Center at Yeshiva University. Ehud Banai provided two musical interludes. Hundreds of people around the world tuned in live to watch it via this page, as well as on our YouTube channel and Facebook page. Watch the recorded conversation above.

This event also marked the book launch of ‘I Believe‘, a new release of weekly Torah essays written by Rabbi Sacks, and published by Koren.
