Our name, South African Jewish American Community, truly embraces all that we represent – our South African roots, our Jewish heritage and our choice to live in America. And it’s this community that really matters to me.
Our first SAJAC president was Leah Levin. She currently lives in Los Angeles. We’re extremely appreciative of her continued SAJAC involvement and support. She writes:
It is almost 40 years ago that we founded SAJAC with the idea of connecting with fellow South Africans to building a community that would integrate into the San Diego Jewish community. Our extraordinary South African heritage endowed us with the will and the ability to become a vibrant part of a country we now call home.
