The KOCOSA Committee (Kosher Consumers of South Africa), together with Eric Berger and Kelly Levinthal of the UOS, met on Monday 18 July at Coffee Time to bid farewell to KOCOSA chairlady, Esther Maizels, who will be shortly going on Aliyah. 

Esther has been involved with KOCOSA since its inception in 1989 (33 years ago!), first as a committee member, then vice-chair and finally chairlady for many years. We are happy to announce that she will remain on as ex-officio and will be available to assist where necessary

Unfortunately, Rabbi Yochi Ziegler, Head of the Cape Town Kashrut Department could not attend but sent a special message to Esther, thanking her for her years of service to KOCOSA and the Cape Town Jewish Community.

Congratulations to Maxine Boyd and Sarah Wosk who have taken over the leadership of KOCOSA. We wish them continued success in the promotion of kashrut.
