Netzer travels to Gqeberha

Over the weekend of 3 to 5 March, the SAUPJ sent Rabbi Emma and Rachael to visit the progressive community in Gqeberha  along with Ezri as a Netzer representative. 

They ran programmes and services throughout the weekend, and socialised with the local community. The Gqeberha Temple Israel community is a wonderful community with many enthusiastic people participating. Rabbi Emma and Rachael ran the Friday evening, Saturday morning and Havdallah main services, while Ezri ran the kids’ programming on Friday evening and Saturday morning. The visit to the community was a great experience for all involved. by Ezri Brooking
