Jenna Goldberg, Alexander Hasse, Jesse Flash, Nathan Beswick, Gabriella Flash, Noah Gonsenhauser, Joshua Lyons, Sarah Gonsenhauser, Cailin Groll and Alex Frankel do their bit at Temple Israel's Mandela Day

Over 100 people gathered at the shul in Green Point, Cape Town on Sunday 15 July for our annual Mandela Day activities.

With many loaves of bread, tins of jam, jars of peanut butter, socks, soaps and knitted squares collected in the weeks prior to the big day, the Sandak-Lewin Hall was a hive of activity culminating in more than 2 300 sandwiches, 450 sock ‘n soap packs and more than thirty blankets being produced and delivered to various organisations such as The Haven, Beth Uriel, Salvation Army, Kraaifontein Soup Kitchen, Christine Revell Children’s Home and Loaves & Fishes.
Huge thank you to all who contributed items to make up the sandwiches, packages and blankets as well as to all who were there on the day and the Neshama Band for the beautiful music.
