South African Board of Jewish Education (SABJE)


Since 1929 the SA Board of Jewish Education (SABJE) has led the pursuit of Jewish Education within the South African community.  The SABJE is the controlling body of the King David Schools and represents the Jewish community in educational matters.

Its purpose is to guide the King David Schools ensuring that the strategy, ethos and finances are all sound and in place. The Board, through the office of the Director, represents all Jewish Day Schools in its interface with Government, the Department of Education, The National Association of Independent Schools, as well as the Independent Examination Board.

King David Schools currently has are over 3300 students and 300 educators across 11 schools, located on five campuses (Linksfield, Victory Park, Sandton, Minnie Bersohn and Rosabelle Klein in Waverley)

Under the leadership of David Bloch (Chairman), Rabbi Seeff (General Director) and a highly skilled and competent Board of Directors and professional staff, the SABJE has a clear vision of the future of the King David Schools. This vision incorporates academic excellence, fostering the Jewish and Zionist ethos of our schools, and providing as many opportunities as possible to allow our students to achieve success in all of their future endeavours.
