Download PDF for this date

The Jewish community of Cuba condemned the terrorist killings of 21 Jews in Istanbul on September 6. A telegram from Havana to Jacobo Kovadloff, director of South American Affairs and Spanish Media of the American Jewish Committee, signed by Dr. Jose Miller, president of the Comunidad Hebrea de Cuba, and Adela Dworin, secretary, stated:

“We openly condemn the brutal crime which unfolded in the Istanbul synagogue. This is the work of fanatics motivated by hatred, no matter what their origin. We stand side by side with our Jewish brothers and those of other faiths in the right to be secure and respected.”
