Help Support The Cuban Jewish Community

Cuba's Sunday School programs are vital to the strength and continuity of the Cuban Jewish community and key to developing Jewish leaders. Every Sunday morning there are religious school classes for more than 180 students in Cuba. Sunday school is one of the few places Cuban Jews can go learn more about their Jewish roots, develop their Jewish identity and spend time with Jewish peers.

At school, students come together to studying topics ranging from: Jewish studies, religious festivals and learning Hebrew, to studies on Israel, biblical studies and computer skills. Each student is also provided milk and lunch which is crucial and offer much-needed nutritional support.
