Britain’s chief rabbi joined the country’s leaders in paying tribute to the archbishop of Canterbury. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks praised Dr. George Carey, who announced Tuesday that he would retire at the end of October. “Dr Carey has been a humane, warm and caring face of Christianity and as such has been a blessed presence in British life. I personally have cherished our close friendship, which has contributed much to strengthen the bonds between Christians and Jews,” the chief rabbi said.
