Protecting your Jewish civil rights

Dedicated and passionate, the South African Jewish Board of Deputies team works tirelessly to ensure that your civil rights as a Jewish South African are protected. Through continual engagement with government, political parties, civil society, media and other faith groups, the SAJBD addresses the needs and concerns of SA Jewry

Your Connection to Israel

The South African Zionist Federation proudly embraces the role of being the South African Jewish community’s connection to Israel. As steadfast advocates for Israel, our mission includes not only establishing meaningful ties between the people of both lands, but also working pro-actively to reduce anti-Israel sentiment in South Africa’s political, religious and cultural communities through education, advocacy and lobbying.

Your gateway to Israel

The Israel Centre represents The Jewish Agency for Israel in South Africa. It is the cornerstone for Zionist education in the Jewish community, and is committed to strengthening both the community’s connection with the State of Israel and of Israelis with SA Jewry. Its main activities include the Aliyah department of SA, MASA, Partnership together – P2G, the Educational Department and Mishlachat in South Africa and Project TEN.

Creating a network of friends

The South African Friends of Israel (SAFI) operates on the premise that the future of Zionism and the Jewish people depends on spreading the truth about Israel while, at the same time, reaching out to communities across the spectrum in search of constructive dialogue and solutions. As a flagship initiative of the South African Zionist Federation, SAFI is at the forefront of changing attitudes towards Israel, global Jewry and the fight against anti-Semitism.

Protecting your right to express your Jewish identity on campus

The South African Union of Jewish Students (SAUJS) provides a dynamic vehicle for Jewish university students to explore and express their Jewish identity. It enhances the Jewish experience on campus with regular events celebrating all facets of Jewish life. This year saw record sign-ups, with members participating in the many SAUJS-run campaigns.
