Beth Hatefutsoth, the Museum of the Diaspora in Tel Aviv, Israel, is the only repository of data on the history of diaspora Jewry. However the only South African information presently stored in the database of the museum is the history of the Jews in some of the large cities.

This book, which looks at Jewish settlement in the Lowveld, Bushveld, northern Highveld and northern Great Escarpment, is the first in a series of regional books based on a long period of research undertaken by the South African Friends of Beth Hatefutsoth. The aim of the research is to provide a permanent record of the Jewish communities that lived in the "dorps" of South Africa.
