Explore Jewish life in Cuba with author, scholar, and cultural anthropologist Ruth Behar.

Drawing upon her book An Island Called Home and her most recent novel, Letters from Cuba, which is inspired by her grandmother’s story of escaping Poland to make a brand-new life in Cuba, Behar will touch upon themes of immigration, belonging, identity, and preservation that make up Cuba’s Jewish story.
