Update on #Countrycommunityvisits

David King in the Plett shul

By David King, Country Communities Sub Committee Chairperson

As the elected leadership of the Cape Jewish Board of Deputies we have a duty to ensure the well-being of our entire constituency, not just Cape Town. 

As times become tougher economically, Jews are moving out of the more expensive metropolitan areas to places like Muizenberg and beyond. This could lead to a growth in these communities.

March 2019 was a busy month for us, as we visited some small but vibrant Jewish communities in the country, enjoying their hospitality and learning about their issues. We enjoyed a delicious braai with the 60+ Paarl community members and a spiritually uplifting Kabbalat Shabbat in Hermanus.

The Cape Board is committed to caring for the needs of all our country communities in the Western Cape. If any country community would like to contact us or any interested community members would like to join us on such visits, please contact sajbd2@ctjc.co.za, or follow us on Facebook, for more details.
