South African Jewry has lost much of its proud community to emigration, with many moving to Australia. It is the only country which has official relations with Israel yet simultaneously bans elected representatives and civil servants from visiting what many politicians call ‘an Apartheid state’. Every day, many young Jews turn away from Judaism while others turn to right-wing religiosity. Despite this, individuals from the community continue to excel professionally, there is a high rate of Jewish day-school attendance and an unprecedented level of engagement with the Zionist youth movements. Is this a community in trouble or one that is thriving? Time for questions and discussion included.
