Members of the Abelsky and Gordon families, Cape Town 1902

In September 2003, Jacqueline Waldstein Schwab wrote: I've identified Abelsky relatives from Kamajai and Gordon family members from Rokiskis, Lithuania. Both families left to settle in Worcester, Massachussetts, U.S.A., within a few years. Maybe someone can identify their own family members in this photograph.

The image shown, right, is a scan of a signed Israeli flag that I found among the possessions of my late father, Solomon Ogus. It appears to have been signed by a group of people on the date 5 Iyar 5709 (1949), which is the first anniversary of the independence of the State of Israel.
 
My father was intensely involved in Jewish Community activities in Pretoria and Johannesburg at the time, and therefore, I would guess that this flag was probably signed at one of the Jewish Conventions that he was attending at the time. Alternatively, it may have been signed at a first anniversary celebration of the State of Israel.
 
Most of the names on the flag are quite legible, and many appear to be members of the Pretoria Jewish community at the time. It therefore appears that the flag-signing took place at an event in Pretoria.
 
I have managed to identify the following names on the flag, shown in alphabetical order:
 
Julius Block, Mona Brener, C(ecil) Cooper (a son of Arie Cooper), S. Epstein, Berel Factor, R. Hellman, Thelma Jaffe, Marion Klein, Bella Levitt, Annie Levi, Mollie Lewkowski(?), Blumie Matthews, E. R. Mirvis, E. Neufeld, A. Nowosenetz, Solly (Solomon) Ogus, Lea Rodkin, Minnie Sack, Ray Sapirstein, H(arry) R. Schewitz, R. Schewitz, H. J. Schwartz, S. Schwartz, Ettie Shear, E. Shmuelson, or Shmuelow.
 
There are three names I cannot identify. If you can identify these last three names, or can provide any more information about this flag, then please e-mail Roy Ogus, at ogus@impact.xerox.com.
