A MESSAGE FROM THE CHIEF RABBI EMERITUS
Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

In Judaism, faith is like a marriage, and marriage is like faith.  The love between husband and wife is the closest we come to understanding the love between God and humanity.  In both, if we are privileged to experience them, we learn what it means to say: I will fear no evil, for you/You are with me.

The strength of Judaism throughout the ages has been the strength of our marriages, families and homes.  It is there that we experience the Shekhinah, the Divine presence, there that we discover the power of love to transfigure life, there that we learn to care for someone else more than for ourselves, there that we grow into the people we could become.

That is why the Jewish Marriage Council is so important, and why I give it my wholehearted support.  There are times when we need help and guidance.  Relationships are not always easy.  In fact the test of a real relationship is that we face its problems honestly, knowing that there are organisations like JMC that can sometimes give us the insights and skills we need to overcome the difficulties and the moments of turbulence.

So I commend the work of the Jewish Marriage Council and wish it continued success in all its endeavours.

Shalom, shalom,
