Chief Rabbi Mirvis In Perth – The First Time In Australia

Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth, tonight in Perth on his visit to Australia.


Rabbi Dovid Freilich introduced Chief Rabbi Mirvis after which the Chief Rabbi inspired us with his first address in Australia. Julian Sher then moderated questions from the floor.

A tea was held afterwards where the Chief Rabbi and Valerie Mirvis were able to meet members of the Perth Jewish community, including Bram Beinart, a classmate from Herzlia School in Cape Town, meeting for the first time since 1973.

To coincide with the Chief Rabbi’s visit to Perth, I am launching the new Cape Town Kehilalink for JewishGen.

Kehilalinks are Jewish community websites written for JewishGen.org, the world’s largest Jewish genealogical organisation.

We look forward to your photos and stories of Jewish life in Cape Town, past and present.
