Quick Overview

Rabbi Jacobs, who in 2006 was voted the greatest British Jew by the readers of the Jewish Chronicle, talks about the poll, the other shortlisted people (including Hugo Gryn, Sir Moses Montefiore and Rosalind Franklin) and what is meant by ‘the greatest British Jew’. As he attempts a definition of what ‘British’, ‘Jew’ and ‘greatest’ mean, he speaks about his own life and family background. Asking the question whether the whole contest was nonsensical, he recalls the expression ‘gadol’ which is traditionally used in Judaism to describe the great personages of a generation.
