Download PDF for this date

A central Jewish organization to deal with the needs of Cuban Jewry, with headquarters in Havana, will be established in line with a resolution adopted at a conference held here with the participation of representatives of various Jewish groups.

The conference was called at the initiative of the Association Adath Israel.

A second conference is to be held shortly when plans for the constitution of the organization will be formulated.

A census of the Jewish population is also to be held, it was announced.
