Jewish Community of Cuba: The Golden Age, 1906-1958
JEWISH COMMUNITY OF CUBA tells the story of Ashkenazim and Sephardim fleeing from persecution abroad and finding refuge in Cuba, their trials and tribulations of adjusting to a new country, and the building of a vibrant Jewish Community. The Cuban Jewish Community grew from a parlor meeting of eleven Jews in 1906 to a network of schools and synagogues throughout the country. This is a story of peddlers going from rags to riches, Belgian refugees setting up a wartime diamond industry, and an American Mafioso in search of respectability. While reading this book, you will experience the Cuban Jewish Community in its Golden Age. This all came to an abrupt end in 1959, after the Revolution.
