Free Showing of "Jubanos: The Jews of Cuba"

The Jewish Community Library of San Francisco will host a free screening and discussion of Jubanos: The Jews of Cuba on Tuesday, April 3, beginning at 7:00 p.m.  This is a short documentary about the Jewish community in Cuba.  I saw the film last summer at the IAJGS International Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Washington, D.C. and found it very interesting.  A lot of people don't know that Cuba accepted Jews who were fleeing Europe before and during World War II.  This is a great opportunity to learn about a little-known chapter of Jewish history.

The screening will be in the BJE Jewish Community Library at 1835 Ellis Street, Second Floor, San Francisco 94115, between Scott and Pierce.  There is free garage parking; the entrance is on Pierce Street between Ellis and Eddy.
