ylw-text.gif Getting married is challenging for Jews in Cuba. First and foremost, you fall in love (or think you do, a confusing state that knows no political borders). Cubans don't really pay attention to one's religion in this context. When two decide to get married, the religion of the male partner is adopted, or whoever insists more vigorously. Most of the time, when you marry someone who's Jewish, you convert. But, there are some benefits: the Jewish community here is much closer and self-supporting than the Catholic counterparts, if for no other reason than the population is so small. It's simply easier to be.
