 South African Jewry: Before, During, After with the South African Jewish Museum

Sunday 16th August 2020, 6pm UK local time

This presentation will provide a brief history of South African Jewry – a uniquely homogenous community within the Diaspora. From its Litvak roots, through the impact on South African commerce and politics, to current day urbanisation and migration from South Africa.

Presenter Profile:

Following an early career in film and advertising, he became the director of the SA Jewish Museum in 2012 where he has overseen the development of numerous exhibitions, a digital social history archive, and educational and cultural diversity programmes.
