Israel’s Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren came to South Africa for the sixth national conference of the Federation of Synagogues of South Africa, held in Johannesburg August 16-19 and attended by delegates from all parts of the country. A capacity audience heard his keynote address, which dealt with religious issues affecting Israel and its people and supported the state’s attitude towards peace with the Arab states.
