The longest serving award went to WIZO’s Cyrildene branch. And then Suzie Alhadeff, Helen Aronowitz, Fanny Kampel, Mushe Kirsh, Lorna Sonnenberg, Bernice Videlefsky and the Johannesburg North branch were awarded for their 60 years of dedicated service.

Danny Kirsh, son of Mushe, gave a meaningful dvar Torah at the celebration in the Ohr Somayach Savoy Sukkah on Tuesday October 10.  

 Annette Price, honorary life president of WIZO South Africa, spoke about Rebecca Sieff, the woman who started WIZO so many years ago in recognition of the needs of many of the citizens of what was then Palestine.

Psychologist and biblical scholar Adina Roth, spoke about Sarah Imeinu on hearing that she was to have a child so late in life and what we could learn from her about never giving up.

Lee Joffe, co-chairman of WIZO Johannesburg, called up each of the women and branches to receive their awards, giving an overview of their unique contributions. Special certificates, badges and flowers were handed out by Andrea Wainer, co-chairman of WIZO Johannesburg, and Annette Price.

The morning was a special reminder that we are all capable of achieving amazing things if we work together for the greater good.
