Peter Levenberg: The Jews of South Africa

Peter Levenberg is a member of our congregation who has spent most of his life in South Africa. He is a Senior Barrister (trial lawyer) and served frequently as an Acting Judge in the South African High Court. Peter was born, raised, and educated in the vibrant Johannesburg Jewish Community. He practiced law there for many decades both in pre and post apartheid South Africa.

Peter will talk about the history, religious and cultural practices and outsized influence of the World’s eleventh largest Jewish Community. You will hear about the mostly Lithuanian origins of South Africa’s Ashkenazi Jews as well as South Africa's little known black Lemba people who claim Jewish ancestry.
