In his letter on 7 November 2020, he writes:

Shalom friends.

At the end of Shabbat I heard the sad news of the death of Rabbi Lord Sacks and, on behalf of the Christian people of the Diocese of Norwich, I want to assure the Jewish community in Norfolk and Waveney of our prayers at this time of mourning.

Lord Sacks was a giant among us. His contribution to Biblical scholarship and the seeking of wisdom was outstanding. I return again and again to his commentaries on the Pentateuch and his work on living a moral and ethical life. His guidance about leadership has inspired me to live my own responsibilities better. I have learnt much from him and that will long continue.

‎המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים

‎May God comfort you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

With every blessing.
