About us


The Chevrah Kadisha is the oldest Jewish organisation in Johannesburg and the largest Jewish welfare organisation on the African continent.
Established in 1888, during Johannesburg's pioneer gold rush years, it has been taking care of the welfare and burial needs of the community ever since. From inception it provided a paternal, protective and unifying influence and accepted the leadership role in developing the community.

Through the vision of communal leadership, the Chevrah Kadisha has consolidated multiple welfare organizations under its umbrella. This has enabled economies of scale, a professional management infrastructure and an holistic approach to meeting the community’s needs. All support services are managed centrally including fundraising, finance, and operations. This infrastructure enables the General Manager of each of the organizations to focus on caring for the needs of their residents.
