The dinner committee will be chaired by Chief Rabbinate Trustee, Keith Barnett. Its membership includes: Mick Davis, Gerald Ronson, Leo Noe, Stephen Pack, Henry Grunwald, Lord Kestenbaum, Lady Winston, Nicola Mendelsohn, Sir Trevor Chinn, Joshua Rowe, Brian Markeson and Peter Sheldon.
Keith Barnett said:
This will be an historic, once in a generation event and it is an honour to be involved with it. Together with Lady Sacks, the Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks has had a transformational impact on UK Jewry, revitalising our community and our communal organisations. He has become a leading global exponent of Jewish teaching and a powerful moral voice in Britain and abroad. We are aiming to host a memorable, exciting and entertaining evening which will recognise the Chief Rabbi's personal achievements and celebrate our many successes over more than two decades under his leadership.
Further details of the dinner will be released in due course. Any enquiries regarding the event can be sent to [email protected]
