On February 26, of this year, we brought a group of 15 people for a good will mission to Cuba. The name of our tour was Jewish Cuba, Then and Now. So many participants brought an incredible amount of products to help the Jewish Cubans. We met with two large Synagogues in Havana; one a Sephardic Synagogoue and the other an Askenezie. We also made a three hour trip to a small city called Cienfuegos which has a Synagogoue in someones home. It's a very poor community and her home has approximately 20 Jews worshoping the Sabath every Friday. The largest portion from of group were brought together by Cantor Doron Shapira of Penninsula Sinai Synagogue in the Bay area, and the rest of the group were New Yorkers.

We had a May trip scheduled, but due to Corona Virus we had to cancel. BUT we are scheduling a mid-November trip, so be on the lookout! The trip will be posted on our website in June.

We donated items such as diapers, Tyleynol, Advil, soaps, mortureizers, shanmpos, conditioners, ladies and men's razors, toothbrushes ,toothpaste hand wipes, make-up and the list goes on and on.

Thank you to all you generous people!

We toured North Scott High School from Iowa all around NYC. Students were from their Choir department and had an opprtunity not only to tour all of NYC, but to study with Caesar Samayoa of the play "Come From Away" which they saw on Sunday afternoon. It was such fun watching them in the workshop!

Hadassah at the Lido Restaurant in Harlem...what a great find did Ruth Fein find! Sounds like Sally sells sea shells.

The group had such a good meal and they were all so enthusiastic about our Jewish Harlem Tour. Some of the brave folks even performed at the Apollo!

The Lido is on 117th and Frederick Douglas Blvd. Wonderful owner with great service. Even though our group consisted of 56 people the food came out hot and delicious.

Another great day on the Lower East Side tour. The weather was spectacular and the people were great. The man on the left had roots in the nieghborhood. A grandparent lived on the corner of Rivington and Orchard and another grandparent owned a famous "soda" shop called Meyers. I even remember it from my youth...ahhhh youth.

The picture on the right is of Marcia Ikonomopolis, the museum director of the Greek Synagogoue. Marcia is a treasure...scholar on Greek Jewry and she's also clever, witty and engaging. My group loved her presentation. The Greek Synagogue such a Hamisha place!

Join us for our Sunday Lower East Side tour called Fact, Fiction and Fun and get to know Marcia and the community of Greek Jews.

Yesterday Temple Emanuel of Passaic Valley combined a matinee with my "When Harlem Was Jewish" tour in the morning.
What a great group and so brave. Our tour of the Apollo was lead by Mr. Billy MItchell, or as some say, Mr. Apollo. The highlight was when several brave members went on stage to entertain us with their outstanding skills!
