I got the incredible opportunity to spend Rosh Hashanah with a family in Johannesburg. I had great conversations at Rosh Hashanah dinner about my time in Botswana, my Jewish life back in America, and the current political climate in South Africa. It was extremely refreshing to be surrounded by a Jewish community during the start of a new year. Although I am not Orthodox, I felt grateful to have had the opportunity to experience a different type of Rosh Hashanah experience by attending their Orthodox Shul. Being surrounded by so many Jews made me appreciate the richness of our culture and religion; our tradition is something I hold near and dear to my heart. I am thankful to KAHAL for helping me find this family and giving me the resources to have made this spontaneous trip down to Johannesburg possible.
