Lord Sacks says society is “losing the plot”

Society is “losing the plot” as it becomes more secular and less trusting, the UK’s outgoing Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks has said.

He highlighted the 2008 financial crisis and the declining marriage rate.

The National Secular Society said the decline of religious authority had led to a “more tolerant and equal society”.

Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis to be installed as UK chief rabbi

Ephraim Mirvis is due to be installed as the new chief rabbi of the UK and Commonwealth at a ceremony in London.

The former chief rabbi of Ireland will succeed Lord Jonathan Sacks, who has held the post since 1991.

The chief rabbi is traditionally seen as the figurehead of British Jews, and Rabbi Mirvis has said reversing falling membership was a key challenge.
