Abstract

'Martí (1853-1895). Martí's relentless advocacy for Cuban independence from Spain in the nineteenth century made him an icon of freedom in the Cuban collective memory. Among those celebrating Martí's birthday were Cuba's Jews. Although most could date their settlement in Cuba back a maximum of fifty years, they celebrated Martí's interest in Jewish culture and the Hebrew language. Most important, Cuba's Jews identified with the "Cuban Apostle's" democratic ideology, racial and religious tolerance, and his dedication to his-and their-patria, or homeland (Gambach 1990: 7).
