Family Announcements



We would like to thank Rabbi and Rebbetzin Bernstein, family, friends, colleagues and various organisations for their heartfelt support and kindness shown with such compassion on the passing of our beloved mother, mother-in-law, sister, sister-in-law, and grandmother. 

During the week of Shiva, your meals, calls, and messages were a great source of comfort and sincerely appreciated.

Nettie was a remarkable person, a woman of great integrity, compassion, kindness and wisdom and her passing has left an enormous void in our lives. We will miss her every day and her memory lives on in all of us. 

So deeply mourned by Shane and Dean Marks, Bianca and Karl Hodson, Jennifer and Saul Goldman, Trevor Levy and her loving granddaughter, Riley.


Do you know the family of Schewel Lipa Scher who arrived in Cape Town aged 18 from Russia on board the Dover Castle in July 1912? He might have great grandchildren here.
