Quoted in an article on the search for the UK’s next Chief Rabbi

I’m quoted fairly extensively in Miriam Shaviv’s article on the search for the next UK Chief Rabbi:

“Part of the problem Sacks faced is that the expectations of him were so high, and for a lot of people he didn’t fulfill them,” says Kahn-Harris. “None of the candidates being discussed to succeed him has the same kind of profile – or expectations. It’s an opportunity.”

I should add that I believe the best result would be for the post of Chief Rabbi to be abolished given that he can only ever represent a minority of British Jews. But that’s not going to happen and my comments in the article should be read accordingly.
