One late evening Luis took me on a walking tour of Habana Vieja, and we visited many of
the shops which once had Jewish owners. This, the only kosher butcher shop in Cuba,
is still in operation. Other places we visited were former retail stores and restaurants.

David Prinstein stands before a plaque commemorating those who helped build the original synagogue.
A visitor from Miami looked at this and said, "Oh, that's our congregation."
