There is so much to look back on and so much to look forward to in this issue of the Chronicle.

We review amazing events like the Sinai Indaba , including a summary of the top-class speakers and energy at this extraordinary all-day gathering (pages 10-11), and an interview with Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks (page 4).

The SAZF leadership report back on the President’s Conference (page 14) while the Cape Board tells us about ‘learning from the Americans’ (page 12). Afrika Tikkun explains ‘how it all began’ (page 15) and you can read a moving tribute to the life of Israeli author Yoram Kaniuk on page 30.

Meanwhile, there is much to look forward to, such as the Bnoth Zion Yom Tov Market (page 9), Chabad of the West Coast’s concert (page 23), Limmud’s Cape Town Conference (page 22), the Cape Town Holocaust Centre’s annual anniversary lecture (page 22), Friday Night Live (page 19) and so much more.

Exciting events and activities like these reflect a dynamic community space that offers something for every age, interest and level of engagement across the spectrum. There are so many opportunities to become involved, so we hope you enjoy all there is to offer!
