TBE Mission to Cuba

Led by: Rabbi Sisenwine
Rescheduled dates to be announced

Cuba – a land frozen in time – so close, yet decades away … a Jewish community dedicated to its heritage across half a century of isolation and prevalent atheism … a rich and vibrant island culture, filled with dance and song, classic cars and donkey carts, rum and cigars. Experience all this and more as we step back in time together.
