Congregation B’nai Harim

“Havana Negila,” a film about the Cuban Jews’ origin and plight, will be shown Sunday at 2 p.m. at Congregation B’nai Harim, 506 Walsh St. in Grass Valley.

The film traces the history of the Jews in Cuba: their immigration in the early 1900s, the arrival of refugees fleeing Nazi Germany, life under Castro during the 1959 revolution, and the current resurgence of Jewish life.

For all families who share the experience of immigration, it will be clear that the people portrayed in this film are Cubans by chance as much as by choice.

The film includes a spicy soundtrack that includes both traditional Jewish and Cuban music.

Awarded first Prize, Jewish Video Competition. Evan Garella, the producer who lives in Grass Valley, will be attending.
