Warren Goldstein

Chief rabbi of South Africa

The chief rabbi of South Africa since 2005, Warren Goldstein is revered across the Jewish world for his commitment to Jewish community life and education, as well as for his courageous leadership of South African Jewry at a time of growing antisemitism and anti-Zionist extremism in that country. Best known for "The Shabbos Project" – an initiative that encourages South African Jews across different denominations to celebrate Shabbat together – Goldstein is the author of four books, including African Soul Talk: When Politics is not Enough (with Dumani Mandela, grandson of the late Nelson Mandela) and Defending the Human Spirit: Jewish Law’s Vision for a Moral Society.
