  • Profile

    Adjoining the Lodge De Goede Hoop (first Masonic Lodge in South Africa) are two houses and a store, purchased in 1849 for £800, for use as a synagogue and a minister’s house. The Simon van de Stel Foundation plaque reads:
    “On this site stood a house which was used as the first synagogue in
    South Africa consecrated by the Reverend Isaac Pulver, the first
    minister, until a synagogue was built facing Government Avenue
    consecrated on 13 September 1863”.
