    The mother of the Chief Rabbi, Lord Sacks, has died at the age of 91.

    Libby (Louise) Sacks died on the first night of Succot at the Royal Free Hospital in London.

    Born in 1919, Mrs Sacks' parents, Rachel and Elias ran the East End branch of the wine merchants, L Frumkin and Company.

    In 1946 she married Louis and the couple, who had four sons, moved to Finchley.

    She will be buried in Israel alongside her late husband, who died in December 1996.

    The shiva is to be held after Simchat Torah in London.
