April has been a successful period for Habonim in Cape Town. We have returned to our usual scheduling of our Friday Night Meetings which is helping to reinvigorate the movement and the leftist-Jewish space as it was before the COVID-19 pandemic.
We had a very successful Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration, which involved the sampling of some of the best traditional Israeli dishes as prepared by our Shaliach Lee Salama, as well as a taste of the most current Israeli music and dance trends — all socially-distanced of course. We also spent two days preparing hot meals, water and snacks for those students affected by the fire on the UCT campus, as well as the brave firefighters who helped combat the blaze — including our very own Sam Goldberg who acts as a volunteer firefighter.
Overall, it was a productive and uplifting month for HDSA as we continue the process of restarting our typical operations after the disruption of the last year. Aleh V’agshem!
