Issues Facing the South African Jewish Community: The Challenge to Jewish Professionals

By Seymour Kopelowitz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), December 1997

The South African Jewish community is well organized and cohesive, and about two-thirds of its children attend Jewish day schools. However, South Africa is a society in transition, with rampant crime and major change in govemmental and welfare institutions. Emigration, particularly of the young, is accelerating the aging of the community and contributes to a sense of defeatism and insecurity. Yet, the Jewish community remains vibrant.
