Contributors

Do Jews have a particular responsibility to enact Tikkun olam, healing the world? In this session, Dr Noreena Hertz, leading anti-globalisation advocate, and Justice Albie Sachs, a leader in the struggle against apartheid, discussed the decisions that have led to lives lived on the frontline of the struggle for justice and human rights, and explored to what extent their Jewish identity has influenced them in their activism.

The role he played in drawing up the new country’s Constitution was unique and he has only just retired from its Constitutional Court.
