The Jews of South Africa: A Special Community at the Tip of the Continent
Hosted By: Qesher
The history of the Jews in South Africa officially began in 1841, when the first congregation, known as the Gardens Shul, was founded in Cape Town. Experience the history of the community’s roots in Cape Town’s city center. From the first synagogue to the Great Synagogue; from Jewish politicians and political activists to artists and artisans. Witness the growth from a small service of 17 men in 1841 to the healthy and vibrant community of today. Make a visit to the community of Johannesburg, the largest center of Jewish life with its 40,000 members.
