    I am a Pinetown resident. Prof. Walter Peters, retired from UKZN and now in Cape Town is looking for any historical information on the Temple David property on P Mokaba (Ridge) Road including the house which predated the synagogue.
    Contact details for any members from before the move to DJC would be most welcome.

    I've been approached to prepare a heritage assessment of the site of the former Temple David in Ridge Rd cnr McCord, built 1950. I'm hoping that eg a commemorative brochure for the dedication might be available, which could throw some light on the temple itself and what must have been an historical farmhouse behind; or any historical photographs.  I very much look forward to your response.
