Highlighting the best of the best

  • Zach HOME
Last night’s 2016 Jewish Achiever Awards gala was a magnificent night of celebration: the opportunity to recognise the astounding achievements of a community so small but yet so relevant. The theme of this year’s event was “Igniting the Soul of Africa” and the evening spoke to the myriad ways in which SA Jewry has so successfully contributed to “igniting this soul”.

VodaWorld was again buzzing with excitement and anticipation as the winners were announced. 

Nine remarkable South Africans once again received coveted awards at last night’s Gala Dinner – which, as always, is the highlight of the annual Jewish social calendar.

Jewish Report chairman Howard Sackstein said this year’s event once again “showcased the remarkable and disproportionate contribution that the SA Jewish community has made to the country.”
