    This page provides a summary of the Synagogues (Shuls) and smaller outlying Jewish Communities in Zimbabwe and you will find links to underlying information on each one by clicking on relevant page to the left or click on the headlines below.

    In September 2014 - David Gelfand kindly wrote and compiled a large 225-page document which provides historical information on the Jewish Communities of Harare (formerly Salisbury) including details of committee members and other national and local committees. He visited the relevant archives in Jerusalem and  spent many many hours collating and producing this important record. The ZJC are forever grateful to David for the time and effort he invested in this project. Click here to view/download the PDF file. Please note and respect copyright.

    This document was subsequently updated by David Gelfand in March 2015.
