Cuban Jewish women on Israel trip aiming to ’empower and inspire’

Ten Cuban-Jewish mothers arrive in Israel from Havana, as part of a visit sponsored by The Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project (JWRP) and the Diaspora Affairs Ministry.

The women will travel the country as part of the JWRP Momentum trip, including visits to Safed and Masada, according to a statement issued by the project. JWRP says the recent thaw in relations between Cuba and the US made the trip possible.

The Cuban visitors will join more than 800 other Jewish mothers at JWRP’s Momentum Mega Event May 16 at Bar-Ilan University on the outskirts of Tel Aviv.

The entire experience, JWRP says, “is designed to empower the women, inspire them to engage with Israel and Israelis, connect to their Jewish identities, and to develop new leadership skills in order to build their communities and the wider world.”
