A Cuban school's class reunion... and their Yiddish alma mater

From The Miami Herald:

Havana Jewish school's class of 1959 reunites in Miami Beach

The Centro de Israelita de Cuba class of 1959, Havana's first and only Jewish school, held its 50th reunion in Miami Beach.

''Our school is our pride . . . our Yiddish school should live eternally,'' sang the first graduating class of Havana's first and only Jewish high school. The year: 1959.

Fifty years later, they were singing the same song again -- only this time in Miami Beach.
