Nominations for the 2014 Jewish Achiever Awards closed last Shabbos and a record 260 entries were received in the seven categories.

The gala dinner promises to be something completely different. First of all, it is diarised for Sunday August 24, during the afternoon, unlike any other Achievers event so far. It will be hosted at the five star facility Vodacom World Dome in Midrand and guests will be welcomed into the arena by the Afrika Tikkun Field Band Group, as they arrive.
