Relationship with Shuls in SA
LSJS UK has managed to create a vibrant partnership with Shuls around the UK by acting as an outsourced education agent. LSJS provides teachers to run specific series at shuls around the UK. These educational series vary in duration between several weeks to year courses. LSJS is not a shul and does not operate one.
These are the same guidelines to be followed in South Africa by The Academy and we have already formed good relationships with the shuls mentioned below (under Affiliations).
The Academy is affiliated to the following organisations and shuls:
- Waverley Shul – Rabbi Rose
- Sandton Shul – Rabbi Shaw
- Greenside Shul – Rabbi Rabinowitz
- Mizrachi Shul – Rabbi Perez
- Pine Street Shul – Rabbi Gerson
- Victory Park Shul – Rabbi Uzvolk
- Sydenham Shul – Rabbi Goldman
United Mizrachi Organisation, South Africa
The Academy utilises the material produced by LSJS (the London School of Jewish Studies) and receives input and training from its senior staff.
The Academy runs at various venues throughout Johannesburg, but mainly close to the central areas of Illovo and Melrose Arch. Certain shuls have already booked courses by the Academy and thus the courses will be accessible at these venues as well. Please contact us for details of a venue near you.
