COMMUNITY NEWS

DURBAN JEWISH SOCIAL SERVICES

The message from Chief Rabbi Goldstein and his team was clear and easy; Spread the Shabbos love. Pack a Shabbos Shoe Box for beneficiaries of local organisations with essential daily toiletries and help us make a real difference.

We immediately approached the Durban Hebrew Schools Association who jumped on board. Thanks to Solly Berkowitz and Sue Jacobson who galvanized into action and before we knew it, the children from Akiva, Eden, Talmud Torah and Temple David Hebrew School creatively decorated and filled the boxes with toiletries. The community rose to the challenge and were, as we’ve come to appreciate, abundantly generous. Those members in our community who are less fortunate will benefit from your generosity. Our family at Jewel House received their boxes with great enthusiasm and excitement.

Celebrating our 60th AGM

DJSS recently celebrated their 60th AGM and as our President Gaynor Lazarus so aptly explained ‘DJSS’s diamond jubilee is a great cause for celebration. As with a diamond, the organisation has many facets which have had to be cut with human hands to make it into its unique and beautiful shape. We are only able to offer a lifeline to our clients through the kindness and generosity of our donors and volunteers.’
