Such prejudice, the respect enjoyed by the Jewish community of South Africa is not at all com mensurate with its services and its sacrifices for this country. So far, next to nothing has been done to collect the various data, statistics and early events of the various Jewish settlements. We are too busy making history to have time to write it, was the answer received from a leading South African Jew by an inquirer con cerning the beginnings of our earliest communi ties. The wisdom of that answer is on a par with its modesty. Verily, not in such a spirit of folly and conceit will we Zionists undertake to win for the Jew that respect which is due him from his neighbour. It is in the hope of enlist ing your assistance in this most important work of collecting the building-stones for a South African Jewish history that I venture to come before you, delegates of the First Annual Confer ence of the sa. Zionist Federation, with this paper on The Jew in South Africa.
