The Jews of South Africa: A Community At the Tip of the Continent
Hosted By: Qesher
The history of the Jews in South Africa officially began in 1841, when a congregation of British Jews, known as the Gardens Shul, was founded in Cape Town. Experience the history of the community’s roots in Cape Town’s city center, and learn about the role of the Lithuanian Jewish immigrants in development of Johannesburg during the years of the “Gold Rush”. Discuss the situation of Jews in South Africa before, during and after the Apartheid regime, and witness the growth from a small service of 17 men in 1841 to the healthy and vibrant community of today.
