Rosh Hashanah 15 and 16

In today’s Daf Yomi pages, Tony Blair remembers Rabbi Jonathan Sacks

October 25, 2021

Today’s Daf Yomi pages, Rosh Hashanah 15 and 16, remind us that we’re judged not just on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur but every hour of every day, which also means we have constant opportunities to mend our ways and heal the world.

As today marks the yahrzeit of the late Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, we are pleased to share a recent recollection from former Prime Minister Tony Blair, recalling how the rabbi embodied this principle of constantly working to bring healing to the world.
