Vredehoek Choir Visit

9 October 2014

In about 1957-8 while I was a member of the Vredehoek Shul Choir, the choir & Cantor Lichterman went to Stellenbosch to give a concert in Stellenbosch Shul to an audience consisting of theology students from Stellenbosch University. We sang a variety of religious songs and I remember the audience was very appreciative.

 It was quite a strange interfaith meeting between Jews & Christians in a place as unusual as a shul in the heartland of Afrikaner conservatism.

I have attached a photo of the choir & Cantor Lichterman taken on a different occasion.
