British Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks was elevated to the peerage on Tuesday, at a ceremony in the House of Lords conferring his appointment as a lord. Lord Sacks will sit as a cross-bencher in Britain's upper house, as a member who is not affiliated to either the government or opposition. "My thoughts today are with my parents and my grandparents, who came to this country seeking security, prosperity and a home," the chief rabbi said at the ceremony. "I am sure none of them imagined that one of their decedents would be given this opportunity to contribute to the body politic of Great Britain. "My thoughts are also with my predecessor, Lord Jakobovits, and I will endeavor to emulate the example set by him and other English Jews who have been given the opportunity to serve the country we love."
