For 2,000 years, the synagogue, responsible for educating generations of Jewish students and families, has stood at the center of Jewish life and learning. For more than 40 years Bet David has been Johannesburg’s response to this historic chain of tradition.
At Bet David we take pride in the fact that our congregation has long been recognised for its commitment to education—both in the classroom and in non-traditional settings—. Further, we take seriously the notion that in every generation the obligation “to teach your children” falls to every member of a Jewish community. We understand Jewish learning as something that must continue throughout life and we are pleased to present Bet David as a place where these ideals are made manifest through our entire congregational family each and every day.
