Swaziland Virtual Jewish History Tour


There is a very small Jewish community of no more than 50  to 60 members in Mbabane, the capital of Swaziland. The community consists of Israelis, South African Jews, and descendents from World War II refugees. Many Holocaust survivors chose to settle in Swaziland after South Africa refused their admittance. Jews have experienced little anti-Semitism and been active in the business and legal communities of the country. One noteworthy Jew from Swaziland was Stanley Sapire, Chief Justice of the Swazi Court of Appeal.

Swaziland also maintains economic and political.relations with the State of Israel.
