    Let me start by apologising for being unable to attend the Absa Jewish Achiever Awards banquet. Prior engagements have made it impossible for me to do so, in the process robbing me of the opportunity to be part of what should amount to a honorific occasion.

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”.

What’s more, this year’s black-tie fundraiser promises to be the best ever - and that’s saying a lot as anyone who has attended the event before can vouch for.

    Jewish-owned 'Achievers support Springboks

    Jun 15, 2016 Go comment!
    Bidvest and Blue Label Telecoms jumped in and lent their support to the Springboks after Absa pulled its sponsorship - or there may not have been an inbound tour right now. This is probably the first time ever that two predominantly Jewish-owned companies are involved in sponsoring the Springbok rugby team.
