The shul’s cantors, Tulla Eckhart and Brian Joffe, provided song while Rabbi Emma Gottlieb from Temple Israel Cape Town offered a blessing for the shul.

Rabbi Hillel Cohen, who brought the shul’s Torah scroll from California last year, said a few words, along with SA Union for Progressive Judaism (SAUPJ) national chairperson, Greg Flash, long-time congregant, Madeleine Hicklin, and SAUPJ honorary life president Steven Lurie, after whom the shul is named.
