It is a pleasure to extend my warmest greetings to you all on this special occasion.
The South African Jewish community has made a significant contribution in all its spheres, including the world of business and the struggle for human rights. It is a community that is amongst the builders of our new society, a community of patriots determined to make South Africa realize her enormous potential.

May I take this opportunity of wishing the Jewish community good health, joy and prosperity!

Shanah Tovah!


Nelson Mandela
