Since we were on a Jewish mission, we were fortunate to have an audience with Adela Dworin and the head of the Hebrew school. Adela is a key player in the Jewish Cuban community and can answer most questions.
The synagogue is a lovely structure but they need help and donations so bring whatever you can. Their roof was severly damaged by hurricanes and our donations will help fix the damages. We also brought groggers for Purim, vitamins. art supplies, toothbrushes and paste, combs and socks. They need everything.
We were fortunate to attend a Shabbat service at 6PM on Friday night. Young people conducted the service and gave a D'var Torah. A Chilean Rabbi visits Havana occasionally and helps train them.
Felt great emotion meeting with our Jewish brothers and sisters in Havana.
