Young Jews make waves in the Mother City

  • CT
A yacht party on the bobbing waves of Table Bay, last Sunday, brought together close to 150 of Cape Town's young Jewish students for the "Chabad on Campus" official launch. The Sea Princess, South Africa's largest day passenger boat, was commissioned to accommodate a sold out crowd for cocktails, live music and vibrant Jewish socialising.

In social media, and overwhelmingly positive e-mail feedback, students shared their appreciation for this long overdue addition to the network of Jewish life in Cape Town.

Samantha Miller, a UCT third year student who is events co-ordinator for Chabad on Campus, said: "All my friends couldn't believe how much fun you could have at a Jewish event. This is exactly what we need!"

The event was the first of many, soon to be housed in a dedicated Rondebosch student centre near UCT, that will allow for young men and women to meet, grow and nurture a unified Jewish student community.

In addition to locals, Cape Town's age 18-25 Jewish population includes university students from Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and a significant number of foreign exchange students from the US and Europe.
