The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

In the Chief Rabbi’s re­cently pub­lished book­let Let­ters to the Next Gen­er­a­tion: Re­flec­tions on Yom Kip­pur, he writes: “Never look down on oth­ers. Never think that be­ing Jewish means looking down on gen­tiles. It doesn’t. Never think that be­ing a re­li­gious Jew en­ti­tles you to look down on non­re­li­gious Jews. It doesn’t. The great­est Jew, Moses, was also, ac­cord­ing to the To­rah, “the hum­blest per­son on the face of the earth”.

If the Chief Rabbi’s mes­sage is taken to heart, the JC let­ters pages will be qui­eter than usual this com­ing year! David Miller Dar­lands Drive, Bar­net
