We were very fortunate to travel with a Jewish mission because our director was able to set up a meeting with Dr. Myra Levy who answered many questions about the Jews and their life in Cuba.
The sanctuary is not outstanding but the ark holds several Torahs.
It was quite interesting to see the senior center and interact with Jews and non-Jews playing dominos and cards and musical instruments. There is also a big gym.
Steven Spielberg set up a Holocaust Museum here which is great as well.
We came with donations and we brought Purim groggers, art supplies, vitamins, toothbrushes and paste, combs and socks and money. They need everything.

Ok, this took me by surprise. Yes my very first thought was, am I in Moscow. But I knew I was not. Surprisingly, this is the Sephardic Jewish Synagogue in Havana. They support struggling Jewish families in Cuba. They offer prayer services, a senior center and a free public pharmacy. All interesting to me. It is at least worth a stop and a photo in my opinion.

This building seems really incongruous given the rest of Cuba is colonial in style. Also, due to the Revolution, religion is very muted in Cuba, so this was a surprise. It is a beautiful building though.

This building is architecturally interesting and worth a look see. The staff is also friendly and welcoming to all.

My husband and I arrived at the synagogue without having an appointment but were not only warmly welcomed but provided with a thorough tour by the secretary. It mattered not that one of us was not Jewish. We learned the history of the synagogue and about the congregation and services offered to the community. The pictures on the wall, the artifacts, artwork general ambience and particularly the time freely given by staff all contributed to a wonderful and very worthwhile visit.
