Cuba, visit by Israeli phtog team

In a country that appears at a standstill, the Cuban Jewish community is, “very much an integral part of the country and the national identity, but they also have their institutions and keenly observe the religious holidays and other important dates in the Jewish and Israeli cultural calendar,” notes a participant in an Israel-based photography team that visited Cuba recently. Check out my Cuba Chapter in “The Scattered Tribe, Traveling the Diaspora from Cuba to India to Tahiti & Beyond,” (Globe Pequot Press), available wherever books are sold, including, as well as an ebook.

  1. Mr. Frank, I came across your name in regards to your travels to Birobidzhan. I am an amateur genealogist. I would like to share a family diary from 1886 regarding an ancestor's journey from there to NYC. Would you please respond to I have some general questions about the condition of Jews at the time and how best to proceed further with a genealogy search from that area, if at all possible for a relative that left in 1887.
