Many people are not aware of the large presence of Jewish culture in Cuba. Before the 1950’s, there were more than 24,000 Jewish people in Cuba. They contributed an enormous amount to the culture of Cuba through the creation of many reputable export companies, clothing stores, and other essential businesses.
The 1959 Revolution spelled a mass emigration of Jewish people. More than 90% of the Jewish population left as a result of the revolution.
Currently, there are less than 1,500 Jews in Cuba, but that doesn’t mean there is not a lot of Jewish culture. The community is close due to the low numbers, but they continue to have community schools and centers as well as synagogues.
