  • Cematario Israeli De La Communidad Hebrea De Santa Clara: (Israeli Cemetery of the Hebrew Community of Santa Clara), a.k.a, Syrian Cemetery . "Commonly called the Syrian Cemetery for small community that sprung up around it known as El Barrio Los Syrians . With no actual street name, the location is an extension of Calle San Miguel. Founded 1932 with the first burial on July 10, 1932 and the last in 1986, the cemetery contains under 100 burials. The site serves the Jewish communities of Santa Clara and Cienfuegos. Eddie Levy, [(305) 856-0177 (305) 856-1210 (fax)], head of the American organization 'Jewish Solidarity with Cuba', has relatives buried in the cemetery. He organized an effort to restore the cemetery [before 1998] when the cemetery was known to be in bad shape. The organization also provides help to the residents of the surrounding barrio. He has a list of most burials there." Source: Website for Jews of Santa Clara: http://www.jewish-solidarity.com - [link no longer available]: [October 2000]
