Tucked away in Ryneveld st (close to the corner of Van Riebeeck st) in Stellenbosch is the synagogue , of which the foundation stone was laid in 1923. Prior to this the first services were held from 1900 in a private house and a rented hall. The adjacent house became the residence for the Rabbi which is today rented out as offices.
In 1956, congregation consisted of approximately 70 families and unfortunately today there are only 10 actively participating families remaining.
A 30 minute service is held every Friday evening at 7pm, and all visitors to the area are welcome to attend.
