Rosh Hashanah in South Africa

Rosh Hashanah in South Africa

The Jewish New Year

The history of the Jewish Community in South Africa country can be traced back to the early European settlers in the early 19th Century, which means that South African Jewish traditions can be dated to as far back as the 1800’s or before when the Jewish settlers had not yet arrived from Europe. Like the Jews in the US the South African community also originated from the Diasporas communities originating in Germany and Eastern Europe.

The first congregation was the Gardens Shul in Cape Town and it took place in November 1841. Almost as long has South Africa has been a colony there has been a Jewish Community.

You could say that although the festival and tradition of Rosh Hashanah is as old as the religion itself, where South Africa and members of the South African Jewish community are concerned it is a holiday almost as old as the country itself, which is a wonderful thought, to have a tradition that has been entwined with the history of a country.

Many notable South Africans that were an integral part of South Africa’s rich and varied tapestry were part of the Jewish Community. A vast majority of the Johannesburg upper crusty society in the 1880’s aka the Rand Lords we Jewish, most notably Lord Alfred Beit; he was a gold and diamond magnate and central to the development of the infrastructure in both Central and South Africa. In fact it is after him that the bridge on the boarder of Zimbabwe and South Africa is named.

The history of Judaism is intricately intertwined with the history of South Africa. When is Rosh Hashana?
