Summers in Muizenberg, SAJAC News, Habonim, Kehillat Shaarei Torah, the Millway townhouses and Boerewors. What do all these things have in common? Find out in a photo-rich webinar about the history of Jewish life in South Africa and the immigration of Jewish Southern Africans to Canada.
Gavin Morris, Director of the South African Jewish Museum will share anecdotes, images and films from the Toronto-bound exhibition The Goldene Medina that tells the 175-years story of Jewish life in South Africa. Dara Solomon, Executive Director of the Ontario Jewish Archives will pair this history with images and interview clips from the OJA’s recent Southern African Legacy Project which captured the experience of those South Africans who made Ontario their home. Together, they will explore the unique experiences of these groups and what shifted in their Jewish identity upon migration to Canada. Q+A to follow.
