Just as Jonathan Sacks is now, Immanuel Jakobovits was a hard act to follow as chief rabbi.

Lord Sacks’s predecessor worked on so many levels. Our own son, for example, owes his very existence to a chance conversation I had with Amélie, Lord Jakobovits’s wife, which led to an introduction to a top fertility specialist.
