The Chai Society

If you are making a contribution to be distributed to those in need for please send a proof of payment to [email protected] and Rabbi Deren will make sure that it reaches a family immediately.

Chabad of the West Coast with The Shul of Blouberg West Coast and the Sinai Academy, creates a positive Jewish experience for hundreds of Jewish families on the frontier of South African Jewish assimilation.

From the 350 people that pass through our doors during the High Holiday season, the 75 children that come through the doors of the Sinai Academy every week and the countless others whose lives are positively influenced through one of the many programmes, email newsletters, events, classes and experiences that we create across Cape Town and South Africa.

The Chai Society is a group of generous individuals who, with contributions of anywhere between R108 and R1,080,000, provide the financial resources for our community.

Join the Chai Society with any contribution in multiples of R180 and help secure the future of our community. Thanks to a Founder of the Society, every contribution you make will be matched 1 to 2, so your contribution is increased by 100 percent.
