The Jewish Experience
February 19 to 24, 2020
In 2007 The New York Times estimated that there are about 1,500 known Jewish persons living in Cuba, most of them (about 1,100) living in Havana with a thriving community in Cienfuegos. For a time Cuba had no rabbi, but by 2007, one was based in a Havana synagogue. He often encourages visiting Jewish peoples to give Tzedakah (charity) for the community. There are three synagogues in Havana. In December 2006, the Cuban Jewish community celebrated its 100th anniversary.
