Cuba: Up Close and Personal with Rabbi Sunny Schnitzer
Presented by Sunny Schnitzer, Rabbi, Bethesda Jewish Congregation; President, The Cuba America Jewish Mission
While visiting Cuba is currently all the rage and many American Jewish tourists stop by the Havana synagogues, the Cuban Jewish community faces unique pressures concerning its future. Will new freedoms and the tourist economy trickle down to alleviate the poverty experienced by most Cubans? Will freedom to emigrate reduce the Cuban Jewish population further? Will it survive the 21st Century? Join Rabbi Sunny Schnitzer, a 15-time visitor to the island, for an in-depth look at Cuban Jewish history, an update on Cuba today, and the outlook for the future.
