Trip to Cuba: Celebrate Jewish Culture


March 1, 2017
You are invited to be part of the first public Celebration of Jewish Culture in Cuba! This promises to be a landmark event bringing together art, theater, music, dance, and literature. Join us on a trip that will highlight all the ways that Jewish Cuban heritage is alive and vibrant and open to the world.

The story of the Jews in Cuba is like no other Jewish story. Jews arrived on the island at the beginning of the twentieth century, mostly from Turkey and Poland, and brought with them the strong Sephardic and Yiddish cultural traditions. These Jewish immigrants couldn't help but succumb to the stunning vitality of Cuban culture and so they created a unique fusion of Jewish and Cuban culture. In recent years, a Jewish cultural rebirth has taken place in Cuba that has received a boost thanks to the many bridges being extended between Cuba and the United States. With the outpouring of enthusiasm for Jewish Cuban culture, this is an ideal moment to go and celebrate how Cuba became a refuge and a home for the Jewish people.
