Rabbi Sachs inspiring: on being “creative minorities” in our dying civilisation

First Things Erasmus Lecture “On Creative Minorities” by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks from First Things on Vimeo.

This is why we need “public intellectuals” – so they can gather the insights of 2700 years and condense them into a message that is both enlightening and encouraging. From the culture-forming insights of the prophet Jeremiah to the culture-wrecking barbarity both within and without the walls of the West, Britain’s Chief Rabbi of the last twenty years shows how the Covenant that has sustained both Jews and Christians can still sustain us, and with us as a “creative minority”, there is still hope for our grandchildren’s world.

Do yourself a favour and listen to Rabbi Johnathan Sachs give the 26th Erasmus Lecture on October 21st, under the auspices of that great New York magazine First Things.
