Rabbi Dovid and Rebbetzin Sarabayla Wineberg
Rabbi Dovid and Rebbetzin Sarabayla Wineberg are the senior leaders of the Marais Road family. The Rabbi hails from Vancouver, Canada; Rebbetzin Sara was born in Jerusalem and grew up in London.
Rabbi Wineberg received his Semicha (Rabbinic ordination) in 1995 from the Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbinical Alliance in Israel; the couple married in 1998. Rabbi Wineberg has led communities from the West Indies to Wales and in 1999, he and his young family moved to Johannesburg. They served as the associate Rabbi and Rebbetzin at the Sandton Shul in northern Johannesburg for ten years, before coming to Cape Town in September 2010 to head up the Marais Road Shul.The Wineberg family share the Chabad vision of “Shlichut,” which is the mission of educating Jews in our heritage in a non-judgemental and loving manner. In 2011, at Rabbi Wineberg’s inauguration, our Shul was honoured to host Israel’s Chief Rabbi Y Metzger, who said, “The Sea Point Shul is the leading shul in the community and you have just added the gem to your crown.”
Rabbi and Sara Wineberg are blessed with six children.
