WIZO – Rebecca Sieff Awards event

Chairman of Bnoth Zion Cape Town Hila Zetler, President of WIZO South Africa Shelley Trope-Friedman and 50-year service award recipient Sheila Wagenheim

On Sunday, 27th November, WIZO Cape Town hosted its Annual Rebecca Sieff Awards event at the Sephardi Shul Hall.
Two incredible guest speakers attended the awards; Adi Cohen-Hazanov, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of Israel in South Africa, and Kelly Melnik, WIZO member and survivor of the Apropo Cafe terror attack in Tel Aviv.

Adi and Kelly are shining examples of what defines a WIZO woman; inspirational and dedicated to changing lives and helping those in need.
WIZO Cape Town members Sheila Wagenheim and Esther Potash received their 50-year service award for 50 years of commitment and dedication to Bnoth Zion WIZO.
This year the WIZO Executive, branch chairmen, and nominated branch members also received acknowledgment certificates for going over and above to sustain their branches during Covid and Lockdown. 
Bnoth Zion WIZO Cape Town is now in its 121st year, and even after all these years, WIZO’s mission remains the same and focuses on improving lives in Israel and South Africa. Without the support and dedication of members and the Executive, WIZO would not exist.
