Review

The association was founded in 1926. In its beginning, it was named Froyen Farein; afterwards it was renamed by Association of Cuban Jewish Women (AFHC).

In 1991 there was a revival in the Cuban Jewish Community. This revival also took place within the association led by its enthusiastic members. In February 1993, the association was reorganized. From that moment on, many events cultural have been taken place. Its members are involved actively in every cultural or educational program to sustain Jewish life. They work closely also with other organizations within the Cuban Jewish Community , such as ; Hadassah Chapter, The Sunday School, Youth Organization , SIMJA elderly Group and B’nai Brith Maimonides Lodge.

In 1996, the first national Jewish women’s meeting of the AFHC took place inn Havana. Since 1999, the AFHC is affiliated to the International Council of Jewish Women (ICJW).
