The Jews of Cuba — Today and in the Past

Presented by Isaac Shafran

May 7, 2014
7:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Oakland Mills Meeting House

Columbia Jewish Congregation member Isaac Shafran, born in Cuba, will share his knowledge of the history of Cuban Jewry, as well as the present situation of the Jewish community in Cuba.

The Jewish population was at its peak just before the Cuban Revolution in 1959 but since then has dwindled to a tenth of what it was. There has been no Rabbi on the island for the past few years.

Mr. Shafran and his family visited Cuba in 2012, 52 years after he moved to the US. He will share his experiences and observations as the result of meeting with Jewish community leaders and visiting several synagogues.
