Jews of South Africa Exhibition

Last Thursday, a series of cultural and educational events to mark 175 years of Jewish life in South Africa culminated in the opening of a superb new exhibition on what it has meant to be a Jewish South African over the generations. The SAJBD Cape Council partnered with the SA Jewish Museum in putting together the exhibition, which has been a remarkable  success and which we hope to bring up to Johannesburg eventually. I endorse our Cape Chairman Eric Marx’s remarks on the occasion, when he cited the famous injunction in Pirkei Avot not to separate oneself from the community and went on to stress how our strength as a Jewish community has always been on how unified and well-structured we have been, whilst at the same time playing our part in the wider society.
