Although a miniature community of a thousand people, the Jews of Cuba have attracted wide attention for choosing to shoulder the responsibility of safeguarding the Jewish legacy. At the same time, the Jewish community has been affected by the continual loss of its members through the many migrations that have taken place since the early years of the Cuban revolution to the present day. The lecture will address the contradictions surrounding Cuba's Jews on the island as they forge a path between the scroll and the revolution, between Jewishness and Cuban citizenship, while also exploring the connection to and separation from Cuban Jews in the diaspora. Please join us for a reception after the lecture. Books will be available for purchase. + Ackerman Hall, Michael C. Carlos Museum Campus Events
