CUBAN YOUNGSTERS AWARDED
Within the framework of Joint which organized
the contest for Didactic Resources for young Latin American Jews
“Identity at a stake” in memory of Dr.
Abraham Liberson (Z”L) which main topic was to recreate one
of the most relevant goals: to transmit Jewish values.
The event was aiming at young Latin American Jews,
ages 14-25. To be enrolled they had to create and present a didactic
game to be used when learning Jewish contents.
The initiative of the groups who have participated
and their Commitment with the project express, once more the willingness
of the Latin American Jewish Community of Youngsters to participate
in the Jewish events.
That´s why with satisfaction JOINT and the Libersons who made
this event possible, were pleased and thanked the participants for
their enthusiasm, creativity and intelligence shown in their projects.
Our Community is proud for the three of its members
who participated in this contest have been awarded. Congratulations

the learning of this important Jewish festivity. The game is in
all the provinces and soon it will be in all Latin America.
