There’s nothing like spending a few enjoyable hours at WIZO’s pre-Rosh-Hashanah market on a Sunday morning to build up excitement for the Jewish New Year festivities. Not even a few early morning showers could dampen the Cape Town community’s enthusiastic turnout at WIZO’s Yom Tov market on 2 September.
The WIZO branches and 21 additional stallholders went all out, offering delicious food, fresh strawberries, wonderful gifts and treats for Rosh Hashanah, a huge display of collectibles for bargain hunters, and for the kids, a new petting zoo and amazing face-painting.
WIZO would like to thank Sammy and his Weizmann team for all their hard work, and a very special thank you to Checkers for its most generous sponsorship. All funds raised go towards helping underprivileged women, children and teens, both locally and in Israel.
