About Us

About Us

At the Sephardi Hebrew Congregation of Cape Town, we celebrate our rich Sephardic heritage in a warm, inclusive environment. Grounded in tradition and Torah values, we foster spiritual growth, strong community bonds, and acts of kindness.

As the only Sephardi Congregation in Cape Town, built on the foundations of the Rhodes Jewish Community, and following the Orthodox tradition, we are a broad spectrum of members, encompassing all the levels of observance, where our common Sephardi heritage, and common Jewish values, bind us together

Our Vision

We envision a vibrant and resilient Sephardi Jewish Community in Cape Town, rooted in our rich cultural heritage and guided by our shared values of tradition, unity, and compassion. Our community thrives as a broad tent, grounded in the Rhodesli Sephardi traditions offering a warm and inclusive communal home, where members of all ages and levels of observance actively participate in religious, family, social, and communal activities.

Through proactive engagement and collaboration, we preserve and celebrate our unique Sephardi traditions, languages, and customs, passing them down to future generations with pride and reverence. We honour those who came before us and apon whose shoulders we stand.

Our vision is one of enduring strength and unity, where the Sephardi Jewish Community of Cape Town flourishes for generations to come, enriching the lives of its members and contributing positively to the broader society. Together, we build a future where our traditions thrive, our bonds deepen, and our cultural legacy endures
