How South African Jews founded the modern city of Ashkelon

David Zwebner’s The Founding of Modern Ashkelon by South African Jews– a history of the coastal town that was funded and founded by money raised in Cape Town and Johannesburg. The book – and entrepreneur Zwebner’s interest in Ashkelon (where he now promotes real estate) – sprang from a random mitzvah some years ago. Completing a stint of IDF reserve duty just before his final tour guide exams, he gave a hitchhiking soldier a lift to Ashkelon, even though it was in the opposite direction of his Jerusalem home.
