My family came from Cuba in the sixties. When I was iny twenties I began to ask questions, such as: "why was I told early on that our family doesn't eat pork ?" I always felt like I needed to be in Israel, but why? Then my grandfather told me before he passed away that our family is Jewish.

Money needs to be spent on education

You are SO right. With intermarriage & assimilation being as high as it is today,money needs to be spent on education, part of which is bringing the young people to Israel.

Memorial vs. descendants

AMEN to that Lori! Priority we need to concentrate on our children and future generations to keep Judaism strong! Not just in Cuba, especially in the USA! Our ancestors are crying thinking of all the youngsters dissapearing, assimilating and forgeting their roots! Please continue to do the wonderful work you do, teaching and bringing people to Israel. G-d bless you.
