The SAZF and Judge Richard Goldstone
16 April 2010

The SAZF wishes to clarify that discussions were held with the Sandton Synagogue regarding the forthcoming barmitzvah of the grandson of Judge Richard Goldstone, and agreement was reached between the parties that no comments would be made until after the celebration.

Contrary to distorted media reports and false blog accusations, the SAZF states unequivocally that at no time was there any suggestion raised by any party that Judge Goldstone should be “barred” or “banned” from entering the synagogue.
