Ephraim Mirvis installed as chief rabbi

Ephraim Mirvis has been installed as the new chief rabbi of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth at a ceremony in London. As the BBC reports, Mirvis took over from Lord Jonathan Sacks, who held the post for 22 years, on Sunday 1st September. With Michael Howard and Ed Miliband present, as well as the Bishop of Lambeth and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, the new chief rabbi used his first address to call for ‘real unity’ in Britain.

A full video of Mirvis’s installation can be viewed via the Jewish Chronicle’s website.
