On Monday 17th November 2014, Rabbi Sacks attended an International Colloquium on “The Complementarity of Man and Woman” convened by The Vatican under the auspices of Pope Francis (more details at http://humanum.it/en/).

In his speech, Rabbi Sacks spoke in support of the institution of marriage and “the most beautiful idea in the history of civilisation: the idea of the love that brings new life into the world.” Video highlights, full speech, audio recording and transcript below.
