BOSTON–Fear. It is quite the dominant emotion these days. In less than 13 minutes, Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks modulates a way on “How We Can Face the Future Without Fear, Together.”

One expects the comfort of truisms from religious leaders. Instead, we are treated to the workings of an elegant and searching intellect.

With prose that flows like poetry, Sacks distills a range of ideas drawn from biology, anthropology, political philosophy and social communication to both acknowledge the challenges of a rapidly changing world and ways to gird it.

Poignantly, the 2017 TED talk is the last we can hear from this thinker; Rabbi Sacks died last November. After hearing this talk, I had looked forward to spending more time with him.
