Chief's advice for students

April 2, 2009

The importance of student activism was stressed by Chief Rabbi Sir Jonathan Sacks when he addressed a Friday night dinner at Finchley Synagogue organised by Tribe Campus and University Jewish Chaplaincy, with Union of Jewish Students’ input.

He told over 250 students that they should also offer support to those beyond the campus world.

Among Jewish societies represented were Birmingham, Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, University College London, Leeds, LSE, Manchester, Nottingham and Oxford.

University College London J-soc co-chair Jonny Grunwald said: “The dinner was a tremendous success in every respect — excellent food, great atmosphere and an intense and emotive address from the Chief Rabbi.”
