About Cape Jewish Chronicle newspaper
The Cape Jewish Chronicle was established in November 1984, with editor Irma Chait, holding the position for 26 years. Irma retired at the end of 2010, and was succeeded by Tali Feinberg. Tali did a fantastic job in the position for 4 years and was succeeded by Lindy Diamond in 2015.
The Cape Jewish Chronicle comes out every month, but with one issue for December/January and the three bumper issues being the Pesach, Rosh Hashanah and Channukah editions.
The Chronicle is sent without charge to every Jewish household in the Western Cape, with readers invited to remit voluntary subscriptions of R260 p.a. (2013). Overseas subscribers can receive their editions by airmail at a cost of R600 per year.
The Chronicle includes local organisational and social news (including family announcements and bridal pages), editorial material, commentary on local and Middle East issues and columns of a lighter nature. Advertising includes both commercial and classifieds.
The July 2007 was the 250th issue. It featured the usual content plus some special features and photographs, including a history of the paper.
