Virtual Tour of Jewish Cuba
Hosted By: Baltimore Zionist District
Join the BZD and tour guide Aliet Achkienasi, and explore the Jewish life in Cuba since the very beginning of the history of Cuba in 1942. In the Christopher Colombus ship, the expedition’s interpreter was a Jewish Converso named Luis de la Torre. Currently, there are five active synagogues on the Island: three in La Havana, one in Cienfuegos, and the last in Santiago de Cuba. The Jewish population in Cuba is approximately 600 members, of which 500 are located in La Havana. They celebrate ALL the Jewish festivities, including Sabbath.
