This is the biggest Jewish community center in Cuba. there's a synagogue attached to the center, and it is fully functioning with a visiting Rabbi who comes from other parts of Latin America to hold services. The center supports a free pharmacy which anyone in the neighborhood can visit for over the counter and prescription items that are very hard to find otherwise. The center sponsors lots of athletic activities for kids, and it even sponsors a series of teams for the Maccabbi games held in Israel every 4 years.

This is the center of Judaism. There are approximately 1300 Jewish people in Cuba.
Havana has a small Jewish community. This is a modern Synagouge situated in Verdado. Built in 1959. We were given a short tour in the yewish section and had a chat with some religious people. Nice folks and very friendly. they ask us for money and if you visit bring medicines.

Havana has a small Jewish community. This is the largest and most modern Synagouge situated in Verdado. Built in 1959. We phoned first and met some of the office bearers at the Synagogue. We were given a short tour and had a chat. Nice folks and very friendly. Bring medicines if you visit.

This is the center of Judaism in Havana. There are approximately 1300 Jewish people in Cuba. They will give you a nice tour and tell you about Jewish life in Cuba. Be sure to bring some basic medical supplies to given them for their weekly program of giving away needed medicines and supplies to people in need.
