Hear an illuminating talk by Maritza Corrales Capestany, the foremost authority on the Jewish community of Cuba.
Before Fidel Castro came to power in 1959, there were 15,000 Jews and five synagogues in Havana alone. Today, only about 1,500 Jews live in Cuba. Capestany discusses how Jews in Cuba have kept their culture and traditions alive before, during, and after the revolution.
