Cantors in South Africa - Thursday August, 08, 2002.

In reply to the above message there was a Cantor
Kraus at the Oxford Shul in Johannesburg in the 1960's
and 1970's.
Contact Oxford Synagogue, Killarney Johannesburg
for further information.

Does anyone know how I could find out about a cantor who possibly
arrived in SA >from Lithuania after 1900 (maybe Cape Town)? His name
would have been Eliezer Kress (unless the spelling is off or he changed
his name entirely). Would there possibly be a list of synagogues for
that time that also includes the names of their rabbis and cantors?
