Pietersburg Shul makes Aliyah to the Holy Land

The contents of the Pietersburg [Polokwane] Shul and a Sefer Torah were brought from South Africa and presented to the Mevasser Zion Shul in Tel Mond. The opening of the Shul as well as the Hachnasat Torah ceremony took place on the evening of Sunday, 23rd June 2013. The celebration was attended by more than 300 people and the Tel Mond Kehilla excelled itself with the arrangements. The event was well attended by South Africans originally from Pietersburg, as well as Messina, Louis Trichardt and Potgietersrus.

A Wall of Remembrance containing the foundation stones and a timeline of the Pietersburg Hebrew Congregation occupies a place of pride at the entrance of the Shul. The wooden seats, the Cimah and even the old clock on the wall all contribute to the lovely nostalgic atmosphere in this modern version of the Pietersburg Shul.
