By Hayden Norrie, Bnei Akiva Cape Town Chairman
Even though we have all been in lockdown, it has felt like we have all been together.
There has been an incredible sense of unity amongst the Bnei Akiva family, as well as the community as a whole. We were blessed to be able to listen to Ella Blumenthal on Yom Hashoah telling the Bnei Akiva family about her amazing, heart wrenching and brave story of how she survived the Holocaust.
On Yom Ha’azmaut we celebrated our beautiful homeland, Israel, by doing Hallel together with Morasha and a community in Jerusalem, thus bringing communities from around the world together! Despite the lockdown and all the separation, Bnei Akiva branches all over South Africa have had the chance to connect through shiurim, learning and celebrations over Zoom.
Together with our branches all over South Africa, we wish the community health, happiness and joy during this tough time.
Kadima Bnei Akiva!
