South Africa is the centre of Jewish culture in Africa and a required stop for anyone interested in Judaica or getting involved in the local Jewish community. The 75,000 strong South African Jewish community has played a rich and varied role in the country’s history. It is a privilege to share my Jewish culture and my team will take you on an insider’s view of the country’s fascinating Jewish history and modern day thriving community.
