An Island within an Island: The Story of Jews in Cuba

An Island within an Island: The Story of Jews in Cuba

Take a journey with internationally published art and travel writer Irene Shaland to learn about the Cuban Jewish struggle for survival in the face of assimilation and acculturation. Jewish communities in Cuba survived almost complete dissolution after Castro’s revolution, followed by decades of a totalitarian regime perpetrating poverty, deprivation, and strong anti-Israeli attitudes. Then, in recent years, these communities suddenly became arguably the most visited and photographed of the world’s Jewish communities. You will come away inspired.
