    R100-bn JR Lifetime Achiever blasts Obama

    Feb 25, 2015 2 Comments
    2013 Jewish Report Lifetime Achiever awardee Natie Kirsh let rip at US President Barak Obama last week. Why was SA’s richest man so mad? Because they withdrew his beloved Swaziland’s trade incentives derived from Agoa last month. Kirsh accused US of hurting Swazi citizens in a bid to send message to King Mswati. He is a passionate Swazi citizen & said that “up to 30 000 formal sector jobs will be lost.” Kirsh refers to Swaziland as his “fourth child” & provides significant philanthropic help to business start-ups & schools in the kingdom.

Once again, our eminent and independent judging panel seems to have made a great choice. Read all about Ivor’s new venture and the 2014 Absa Jewish Achievers.

    Oct 29, 2014 3 Comments
    The extent of media coverage of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has surpassed even the swine influenza scare of 2009. Much of it has been alarming and global bodies have responded accordingly. On August 8 the Director-General of the World Health Organisation declared the disease a public health emergency of international concern. PROFESSOR BARRY SCHOUB, recipient of the Jewish Report Achiever Award for Arts, Science, Sports & Culture in 2012, volunteered his services to explain more about it for SAJR readers.

    The opening video for the 16th Absa Jewish Achiever Awards, which was roundly complimented for being the best ever, really was a crowd stopper. The short video was planned as a surprise by Achievers Chairman Howard Sackstein and businesswoman Dina Diamond.

    The awesome 2014 Jewish Achievers

    Aug 27, 2014 Go comment!
    Jewish talent spans across the generations – from the achievements of a 17-year-old to an 80-year-old. This is what emerged at the SA Jewish Achievers 2014 awards held at Vodaworld on Sunday. “Disproportionate” is the word Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein used, at the opening of the event. “This is a word that is being used a lot these days, but tonight we celebrate the disproportionate contribution of South African Jews in terms of numbers in every sphere of life. We are one of the smallest communities, but look at our impact. Read all about it...

    When you invite an eminent person to be honoured for excellence at a high-profile function like the Absa Jewish Achiever awards, and ask him to say a few words to the 600-strong audience, implicit in the invitation is that he is free to talk about things he feels strongly about, whether pleasing to the crowd or not.

    No respectable Jewish driveway should be without one, but, be warned, untold trouble will brew in the family. Why? Because there’ll always be more than one shouting “Shotgun!” for the privilege of using it! Jewish Report’s team test drove KIA’s new KOUP. It’s fast (very), seriously safe, an unbelievably fun-filled drive and it has every mod con. It does have its issues, though, so don’t let bobba go shopping in it! Why not? Read on to find out…
