Woodstock, "Cape Jewish Minister's Association"

Document of the Cape Jewish Minister's Association title holders and letterhead. Partially in Hebrew. On the top right, in Hebrew, "Agudat Ha-Shachar B'Ir Ha-Kaip V'Ha-Galil", literally meaning 'Association of the dawn for Cape Town and surrounds'. Shachar might be an acronym for 'Association of Shochtim (ritual slaughterers), Chazanim (Cantors) and Rabbis/Reverends'. Under the Star of David is a quote from the Rosh Hashana Machzor, "And they will all form a single band". Below that is a slogan displaying some Hebrew wordplay as 'united/band/association' is similar to 'fairytale/legend/story', "If you are united, it is no longer a fairytale". Provided by David Grawitzky.
