The Country Communities Project of SA friends of Beth Hatefusoth is
looking for information on:
BERNSTEIN, Rev. H. and his son, BERNSTEIN, Rev William M (& wife,
Frances), Minister, Shochet & teacher.

Rev William came to SA >from the United Kingdom. Son of Rabbi H
Bernstein of London. Rev Bernstein was a grandson of the Grodno Magid
and was considered a leading authority and author on shechita. Served
the communities of Witbank 1946-1947; Parys 1947-1949; Upington 1949;
Delmas 1950-1952; Aliwal North 1952-1957; Rustenburg 1960-1962;
Bethlehem 1962-1965; Vryheid 1965-1970; Bethal 1970-1976. Also served
in Randfontein, Standerton and Volksrust. These may have been
temporary or part-time posts. Left for Brisbane, Australia in 1977.

His father, Rev. H. Bernstein, came >from London and was Rabbi in
Bulawayo , then known as Southern Rhodesia.

Dates of arrival in South Africa, where they took smichas etc are
needed. Any references in Otzar HaRabbonim or similar works would be
useful.
