Thank you and mazaltov!

By Shelley Trope-Friedman, President, WIZO South Africa

As the President of WIZO South Africa, I would like to record a special word of thanks and Mazal Tov to both the outgoing and the incoming Chairmen of WIZO Cape Town.

Janene Currie, I thank you for your years of faithfulness and dedication. You have served WIZO Cape Town as the Chairman with all of your heart and we so appreciate all that you have accomplished.

Hila Zetler, as you take on the role as the new Chairman of WIZO Cape Town, I wish you every success and much joy and fulfilment in your position. I know that you have much to contribute and I am confident that you will do a great job!

I am inspired by all our WIZO ladies and commend them all for their hard work in assisting troubled children, abused women and Ukrainian refugees in Israel.

Lastly, it is with a heavy heart that I express on behalf of WIZO South Africa that we are deeply saddened by the passing of Rodney Mazinter. Rodney was a steadfast friend and supporter of WIZO — always attending our events and donating generously to our projects — and an active advocate for Israel. He served faithfully over the years to defend Israel and speak the truth. Rodney was a man of great integrity, enormous empathy, endless courage and tenacity in all that he did. WIZO South Africa will always remember his counsel and valuable contributions. A bright light has gone out and the world is a lesser place without him. WIZO South Africa wishes long life to Rodney’s wife Mavis, children Luisa and Jonathan and their families. May Rodney’s memory be a blessing.
