No doubt, my personal, enriching experience as a learner of Herzlia, Cape Town, convinced me of the enduring value of Jewish Education. My relocation to Johannesburg and marriage to Candy, a former learner and English teacher at King David Victory Park and an ardent supporter of the school, ensured that for our four children King David School would provide the perfect answer to our parental expectations.

I have always felt that in addition to an excellent secular education the sine qua non of all Jewish schools is the quality of the Jewish education they offer. For this reason, I was happy to support the recent introduction of the Beit Midrash programme in the King David High Schools. I am now grateful for the opportunity to serve as a trustee of the King David Schools’ Foundation and to play a part in a campaign that will guarantee the very high standards for which our schools are renowned world-wide.
