New acting editor

By Desrae Saacks

For many years I have worked on the sidelines of the Cape Jewish Chronicle, laying out and proofing the pages, sharing thoughts and opinions on its content, direction and format, and building an understanding and appreciation for what a truly precious resource it is. I am finally putting my money where my mouth is and stepping up to the role of editor.

I look forward to the task at hand, made more challenging by the somewhat dystopian reality in which we have all lived the past year.

With COVID negatively impacting the budgets of both our commercial and organisational contributors, the Chronicle too has been impacted. (read more on page 7).

I really hope to make a constructive contribution, and to reach as many as possible of the Jewish Cape Town community, in all its expressions of religious, social and political leanings. I would like to offer us all a window on the many remarkable organisations and individuals that make up this vibrant, active and diverse community.

In the absence of the many physical gatherings that were available to us all in previous years, let the Chronicle be our meeting place. This is where we can share our thoughts, achievements, news and company with each other; and with posterity by way of the rich archive that past issues comprise, and that we continue to grow.

Looking forward to your engagement and support.
