|Cuban Wedding Ceremony|
Cuba has been rabbi-less since Castro’s take over, but three visiting Rabbi’s from Argentina performed Jewish marriage ceremonies for 21 couples, including one for an 84 year old man, and conversions for over 70 individuals, including dozens of young Cubans. The island also recently opened it’s first Kosher butcher shop.
Elsewhere in the world, “Asaf Ben-David, an Israeli Jew, is facing charges of conspiring to carry out a terror attack with a wanted Palestinian militant — his brother.” When good converts go bad. Oy. Makes having a Hunukkah tree not seem so bad, eh?
Nonetheless, not all hope is lost. “In a rare show of solidarity, citizens of Israel and Jordan came together to declare war recently, not on one another, but on a common enemy plaguing both–houseflies.”
