Muizenberg Shul, Cemetery and Pharmacy


I visited Muizenberg a couple of times in the week before Christmas.

Here are some photos taken at the Muizenberg Shul. There  was a healthy minyan for shacharit!

I then visited Gerald Musikanth, another Jewish icon of Muizenberg.


I spent time with Gerald at his Rustenburg Pharmacy, where he has an amazing collection of photos and Muizenberg memorabilia:

  1. Hello Elirab: as a dedicated followers of yours I saw that you once travelled to Mir Belarus…My mothers family all of their generations come from Mir and even have Mirsky as their last name which changed within a a generation to Zuchovisky…I was wondering is there are still Jewish records of the families of Mir before 1900?..Have you any ideas how I could access them IF they exist…Sincerely George Weiss now living in the Netherlands
