Vengeance Against Spain: The Amazing Story of Tampa and Key West Jewish Immigrants who fought for Cuban Independence

Join us for a Cuban lunch and a glass of Sangria as we study why and how Tampa’s Jews helped finance and arm Jose Marti’s revolutionary fight for Cuban independence from Spain. Marti started the Cuban Revolutionary Party in Tampa and was received by Tampa Mayor Herman Glogowski, a past President of Schaari Zedek. Learn how the Russian Jewish expulsion from 1880-1900, and the memory of the Spanish Inquisition played a role.
