Cape Town Progressive Jewish Congregation

Cape Town Progressive Jewish Congregation

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.
