Despite health concerns and empty threats that he might be arrested by local authorities upon landing, Israeli elder statesman Shimon Peres (92), will be in South Africa this weekend. He is slated to speak before a large crowd on Sunday. This Nobel Peace Prize laureate has held every significant leadership position in Israel, including two terms as prime minister and one as president.

France banned the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement as long ago as 2003. Yet it took an Act of the US Congress last June to jump-start the promulgation of anti-BDS laws and actions there. This year adds a wave of new legislation. Read all about it.

Fifa’s presidential election takes place today (February 27) to vote on a successor for Sepp Blatter. There is an ironic “Jewish connection”. One of the front runners (there are five official candidates) is Prince Ali of Jordan. He seems to trail Sheikh Salman Ebrahim bin al-Khalifa and Gianni Infantino. His spin doctor is Jewish Welshman Shimon Cohen.

In a VOX POPamong members of the SA Jewish community, it becomes clear that the unruly behaviour in Parliament (largely read Economic Freedom Fighters) does a lot of damage to the image of Parliament. Struggle stalwart and ANC member Denis Goldberg, feels that “daily doses” of personal conflicts are “unhelpful”. He laments the “politics of personalities”.

The former Great Synagogue in Wolmarans Street, Johannesburg, is now the highly popular Revelation Church of G-d. So popular is the Revelation Church that the queue of worshippers easily extends inside and outside the building and into Wolmarans Street. And the Great Synagogue, through changing demographics, has risen up in a modern guise in Houghton, to the north.

Harley, started by yidden and we still love 'em - 2 stories for you

OLD HARLEY RIDERS DON’T DIE – THEY ONLY LOSE THEIR HAIR
So many Jews went on this year’s annual Harley “Route 62 Rally” that they even organised a Shabbos dinner in Montagu. A stalwart of the event, Michael Bagraim (pictured) told Jewish Report Online that he was amazed at how many Jewish riders had turned up among the 700-odd attendees. One of the Cape Yids hired a special chalet which accommodated a minyan and a Shabbos dinner for some of the riders, some of whose rides can cost over R1-mil. GREAT PICS

A JEWISH COMPANY WITH LOTS OF CLUBSJUST FOR YIDDEN
Yids and their Harleys are quite a story. We found this out when we covered last weekend's rally in SA where they had a minyan, and then we checked out the US... SEE JEWISH CLUB BADGES AND PARAPHERNALIA

And editor Vanessa Valkin talks to Goldman Sachs’ head honcho in South Africa, Colin Coleman, who has been at the coalface of government and business meetings ahead of the budget address this week, about his views.
