My statement on the death of Rabbi Lionel Blue

It’s with great sadness that we hear of the passing of Rabbi Lionel Blue. He was not only a respected rabbi, teacher and mentor for the Jewish community, Rabbi Lionel Blue was also a wise and good-natured voice of reason for us all.

He always made us think and laugh on ‘Thought for the Day.’

His legacy will be that his common sense and great humour will remain in our thoughts each and every day.
