It’s a brave new year to…

This year, for our Rosh Hashana theme, we asked a selection of community members to write us a piece on how they see themselves being brave in the new year.

Thank you to the contributors, who not only took time out of their schedules to write, but agreed to share their personal thoughts with us all.

Through the pages of this issue, you will read how a Progressive Jew, a cultural activist, an Orthodox Rabbi, a newly elected member of the Cape Board of Deputies, a Chief Imagination Officer, a children’s book author, Cape Town’s only Canadian First Nation Jew, and a near-three-decade Jewish community professional plan to step bravely into 5781.

You may be surprised which reflections you most identify with, so give them all a read and then take a moment to reflect on everything that this past year has given you, and all your hopes for the year to come.
