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
