Greenside shul paints pic in late congregant’s honour



Greenside Shul unveiled a new mural on Wednesday, 16 March, for Purim in honour of its congregant, Myna Pretorius, who died suddenly of COVID-19 on 4 January. Pretorius was a key part of the shul community, and her family regularly attend services and learning programmes.
