Review

Guesher (bridge) is the name of the group that assembles the adults in our community. It is the bridge that unites two generations one of them, the younger one, made it possible the meeting with our past, history and feelings as Jews.

This group was created in 1997. It is formed by adults ages 35-55 from the three synagogues of the country to experience a unique event The Majanots. These events are celebrated once a year. In addition, they come together once a month to make activities, outdoor games and share Judaic experiences. Above all, these activities aim at preserving Judaism in Cuba.

Our motto is “Kol ha olam kuló guesher ksar mehod, ve ha ikar lo lefajed klal” as Rabbi Najman said: The world is a narrow bridge everyone must go by, the important thing is to do it without being afraid.

Learning, Sharing and transmitting are our key words. For this group it is a rewarding and lucky experience to live as it cultivates our Judaism


Activities

In November, The National Majané was celebrated in coordination with the JDC. The province of Cienfuegos holds the 140 representatives of all the communities of the country. This is a good chance for friends and families who live far away from each other to get together.

The topic in this Majané around which the activities were prepared were the Jewish Personatilies. In this way, participants could learn more about Rambam, Rashi, Baal Shem tov, and other important personalities of the modern history of Israel, such as Golda Meir and David Ben Gurión.

There was also a place for comedy. Based on the suggestions from the madrijim, the participants represented different Jewish celebreities from the field of Arts. It was then, that during the evening activities the Cuban grace was present as the different Kvutzot performed as Chaplin, Barbra Streisand or Woody Allen. The rikudim and traditional Cuban dances as salsa were also present, as an expression of the shared joy.
