Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren’s Visit to South Africa in August 1973

Photos Found

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.

Chief Rabbi Goren also visited Cape Town, where these photos were taken.
