“Why I am a Jew,” by Rabbi Sacks

“The deepest question any of us can ask is: Who am I? To answer it we have to go deeper than, Where do I live? or What do I do? The most fateful moment in my life came when I asked myself that question and knew the answer had to be: I am a Jew. This is why.”

In this new whiteboard animation, Rabbi Sacks explains why he is proud to be a Jew and what it is about Judaism that makes it so unique.

As we approach Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, take a few minutes to watch and share Rabbi Sacks’ passionate appeal for Jews around the world to connect to their people, heritage and faith.
