Eli Rabinowitz Blog

It is well worth taking a visit to the personal blog of Eli Rabinowitz. The blog, entitled "elirab" is about Jewish life and travel and includes  23 KehilaLinks, many of which are of South African towns such as Cape Town, Muizenberg, Stellenbosch, Oudtshoorn, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria, Germiston, Pietersburg and Witbank.

Eli's KehilaLinks provide an ideal opportunity for ex-pats like him, to connect to their “shtetls” and to share their stories, memoirs, photos and other materials that are most likely stored in a shoebox that may never be seen by others. There are so many cases where children or grandchildren do not understand the relevance or context of these, which is a real shame!

Elis is constantly working to update his blog and has plans to soon ad links to the communities in Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Springs and De Aar.

He has also identified several other towns that would be of interest to ex-South Africans including amongst others, Plunge and Kedainiai in Lithuania, Wroclaw and Lublin in Poland, Mir and Brest in Belarus and Berlin and Dresden in Germany and even Shanghai in China.

Elis is also currently working on Perth, Melbourne and Sydney.

Eli welcomes submissions from the public and invites people to add their town to his list if they have material to provide.
