In this global village of ours it is becoming increasingly rare to discover some cultural entity that is not hooked up to the rest of the world in a neat, technologically facilitated manner. The Jdocu team encountered such a group when it made a fascinating foray to Cuba to document the Jewish community on the island around a year and a half ago.

The results of the team’s three-week sojourn can be seen at the highly colorful and eye-opening The Island within an Island – A Look at the Jews of Cuba, 2012, exhibition currently on display at Beit Hatfutsot in Tel Aviv. The show, which was facilitated by the JDC, features shots taken by the 10-person Jdocu group: veteran journalist Eliezer Yaari, Eli Atias, Benny Levin, Atalia Katz, Naftali (Tali) Idan, Amir Halevy, Yitzhak Goren, Yossi Beinart, Shai Beilis and Nir Dagan.
