British Rabbi
Wins $800,000
Religion Prize

New York (JTA) — Lord
Jakobovits, outgoing chief
rabbi of Great Britain and
the Commonwealth, has
been awarded the 1991
Templeton Prize for Pro-
gress in Religion, marking
the first time that the prize
has been given to a Jew in
the award's 19-year history.
Great Britain's Prince
Philip will present the prize
to the outgoing chief rabbi at
a private ceremony at Buck-
ingham Palace on May 7.
Public ceremonies honoring
Jakobovits will take place in
Toronto on May 27 and in
Vancouver, Canada, on May
29.
The award is being
granted as Immanuel
Jakobovits retires from his
post after a career that
spanned five decades. It
carries with it a stipend of
410,000 pounds sterling, the
equivalent of about
$800,000.
Rabbi Jakobovits was
knighted Sir Immanuel by
Queen Elizabeth II in 1981
and made Baron Jakobovits
of Regent's Park by the
queen in 1988, becoming the
first rabbi ever to sit in
Britain's House of Lords.
Rabbi Jakobovits is the
author of several books
about Jewish medical ethics
and Zionism and of numer-
ous scientific and legal ar-
ticles.
Born in Konisberg, Ger-
many, in 1921, Rabbi
Jakobovits fled Nazi terror
in 1936 at the age of 15 and
went to London, where five
years later he occupied his
first pulpit.
By 1947, he was minister
of the Great Synagogue of
London. He served as Chief
Rabbi of Ireland from 1949
to 1958 and went on to
become the founding rabbi of
New York's Fifth Avenue
Synagogue in 1958. In 1967
he returned to Britain when
he was appointed Chief
Rabbi of Great Britain and
the Commonwealth.
The Templeton Prize was
created in 1972 by John
Marks Templeton, a Ten-
nessee-born financier who
lives in Nassau, the
Bahamas, as a counterpart
to the prizes in other
disciplines awarded by the
Nobel Prize Committee. It is
the world's largest monetary
award.
Past winners of the
Templeton Prize include
Mother Teresa of Calcutta,
Rev. Dr. Billy Graham and
Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
