South African Jewish Women

By Sally Frankental

Hadassah International Research Institute on Jewish Women, November 1, 1999

In South Africa, the segregationist policies of the colonial authorities, the Boer republics, and the Union, followed by the apartheid system of the past fifty years, form the inescapable frame for all who live in South Africa. The complex processes involved in the post-1990 unraveling of the apartheid regime constitute the country's current socio-political reality. This paper is a preliminary attempt to situate the little that is known about South African Jewish women, in relation to the Jewish community and the wider society.
