Scope and content

Cape Argus newspaper article written by Rose Korber. Looking at the Passover message of freedom and Jews for Justice's role in the Jewish community and the abolition of apartheid. Jews For Justice aimed to make people aware of "the fundamental Jewish priniciples of human dignity, justice and equality before the law" and "an abhorrence of all forms of racism and oppression in general, and the system of apartheid in particular." The article shares views from Rabbi Selwyn Franklin, minister to the Green and Sea Point Hebrew Congregation; Prof Dennis Davis, Associate Professor of Law at UCT; and Jill Rosenfield, chairman of Jews for Justice. According to Rabbi Selwyn Franklin, Jews for Justice "emphatically places the traditional Jewish recognition of the rights of the individual on the basis of an active platform." Prof Dennis Davis speaks about being involved with an "ethnic" organisation such as Jews for Justice. Jill Rosenfield shares Jews for Justice is the "first real Jewish political organisation in South Africa."
