Review of the Year (2000) in Foreign Countries: South Africa

By Milton Shain

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2000

President Nelson Mandela retired in 1999 and South Africa had its second democratic elections in June. The African National Congress saw overwhelming support. Israeli leaders visited South Africa to discuss the common challenges faced by the two countries. Overall, antisemitism was marginal, but troubling incidents occurred nonetheless. The diminishing size of South Africa's Jewish population resulted in a reassessment of the needs of the Johannesburg Jewry.
