TELFED, THE South African Zionist Federation in Israel, shares its 70th birthday with the State of Israel, having opened an office in 1948 to provide support to the 803 South Africans who volunteered to fight alongside their Israeli brethren in the War of Independence. Many sons and daughters of South Africa have rendered invaluable service to the State of Israel, one of them a non-Jewish woman by the name of Sylvia Raphael, whose memory will be honored at a special 70th birthday event to be held by Telfed at Protea Village near Tel Mond on July 12, 2018.

The event includes a screening of a documentary directed by South African director, Saxon Logan, “Sylvia: Tracing Blood,” which examines the life of Sylvia Raphael.
