Cuban Jews


A descendant of Turkish immigrants to Cuba, Jose Levy Tur leads the Centro Sefardi, one of three synagogues in Havana, and the only Sephardic one in the city. The majority of Cuba's Jews are Sephardic, says Levy, though American visitors seem to want to hear mostly about the Ashkenazi. (Photo: Jorge Rey)
