Donated by Rabbi Greg Alexander, the Cape Jewish Progression Congregation collection contains material such as letters, photographs and newspaper clippings concerning well-known members of the community.
There are also several certificates issued in the early 1900s. A ‘Royal Antediluvian’ Order of Buffaloes certificate issued in 1910 is included, inducting one Mr J Kossick to the “ancient and honourable order in the D’Israeli lodge’. A large, illuminated Hebrew Order of David certificate is also present, certifying A P Bender Esq. as a brother in March of 1923. The certificate is unfortunately rather damaged, ruining the illustrations on the left side.
