Welcome

Welcome to the Sephardi Hebrew Congregation of Cape Town, the only Sephardi Kehila in the Western Cape Province of beautiful South Africa. Our membership boasts a mix of descendants of the Jews of Rhodes and Israeli Sephardim living in Cape Town. The blend of cultures is one of the unique features which makes our community so special.

Kahal Kadosh Shalom (as our synagogue is also known) is our soul….the traditions we carry forward from our Papous and Nonas – the age old tunes, food, Tefilah and Torah, are part and parcel of who we are.  Our synagogue is vibrant and will serve your every need, regardless of your level of observance.  We have regular synagogue services, classes and group gatherings for all ages and we run children’s programmes on Shabbat and Chaggim.

Please explore the various tabs available to you. There are links to pages directly related to Sephardi Hebrew Congregation as well as to many of the services offered to the greater Cape Town Jewish Community (Mikvah, Chevra Kadisha and much more).
