Check out the rest of our Campus

In recent years a magnificent campus has been built around the Gardens Shul, creating a vibrant hub of educational and social life in the original space where the South African Jewish community first began. The Campus is indeed unique in the history of Congregations anywhere in the Jewish world.

Opened by Nelson Mandela, the campus houses the South African Jewish Museum, Cape Town Holocaust Centre, Jacob Gitlin Library and Café Riteve a daily eatery open for breakfast and lunch, communal halls and community administrative centre. The City Sightseeing Red Tour Bus has a stop directly outside the campus. Don’t forget to bring your ID/Passport for smooth entry.
