Re: Henriques Valentine #unitedkingdom
There was a Rabbi Abraham Frederick Ornstein at the Great Synagogue in Capetoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
In the book 'The Birth of a Community" by Prof Israel Abrahams I learned
that he was the 3d minister to be appointed to the Cape Town Hebrew
Congregation, arriving there in 1882.
He was born in London in 1836, and prior to this had served as a Minister
in the Antipodes, and had been a teacher at the Jews Free School in London.
In 1866 he was appointed Minister to the Melbourne Hebrew Congregation.
He held several other posts as teacher and headmaster and Minister in as
many different cities and countries prior to his posting to Cape Town.
I could not find a Rabbi Valentine in the index but the book refers only to
the Cape Province.
