NEW YORK – The president of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) has called Nelson Mandela, the former South African president and campaigner against the apartheid regime who passed away Thursday at the age of 94, “unquestionably the most inspiring human rights advocate of our times”. Ronald S. Lauder declared: “Nelson Mandela was one of those very rare leaders who were revered not just by their own people but universally, across all political and communal divides. As a builder of bridges, he was second to none, and with his huge charisma, wisdom, democratic convictions and tremendous determination he ensured that the transition of his country from an apartheid state into a free and democratic nation was successful.”Lauder added: “Whilst he will be greatly missed, Nelson Mandela will continue to serve as an inspiration for countless people around the word, including many Jews. He will always be remembered as one of the world’s foremost political leaders of the past century, not least because he managed to bring together the various ethnic and religious communities of his home country. South Africans have every reason to be proud of this great son their country.”In Cape Town, WJC Policy Council Co-Chairman Mervyn Smith, who also serves as head of the African Jewish Congress and is a past president of the South African Jewish Board of Deputies, said: “Nelson Mandela, from his young days as a lawyers’ clerk in Johannesburg, had a close relationship with South African Jews. During his trial from 1956 to 1961 and thereafter, he was defended by many Jewish lawyers and advocates. After his release from prison, he met with the leadership of the Jewish community frequently and counted many South African Jews as his personal friends.“On the day after he was elected president of South Africa in 1994, he attended Shabbat services at a synagogue in Cape Town. He was admired, revered and respected by the Jewish community and by all South Africans,” Smith added.

Situato sullo sfondo della maestosa Table Mountain, il resort offre 131 soluzioni abitative di almeno 60 metri quadrati, le più ampie della città, con terrazza privata o balcone. 91 camere e suites sono situate nella Marina Tower e godono della splendida vista della Table Mountain e della marina, mentre 40 prestigiose suites trovano spazio su due isolette, accessibili attraverso ponte o water taxi.  Island, l’isola su cui si trovano le camere e suites di lusso, è circondata da una infinity pool di 350 metri quadrati, sul bordo della quale sono disponibili chaise longues e ombrellone per rilassarsi e prendere il sole. One&Only Cape Town  dispone inoltre di una Spa con prodotti Espa situata su un’isola privata, con 12 ville riservate ai trattamenti, sauna, sala relax e due piscine di 18 mq ciascuna; ed un’area fitness di 200 mq.
