But, in January 1992, Szteinhendler made his first visit here at the behest of the American Jewish Distribution Committee, which had entered Cuba a year before to provide community-development expertise in reinvigorating a long- dormant Jewish community.
"I remember they told me, `Don't forget us,' because other rabbis had come and gone," Szteinhendler recalls of the Jews he met then. When he returned two months later with religious supplies, "they were shocked that I returned."
Szteinhendler's inspirational appeal to this community now totaling some 2,000 people quickly became apparent when he accompanied a JDC board mission to Cuba in early December. The trip coincided with the 40th anniversary of the Patronato, the main synagogue here.
Szteinhendler was continually praised by Cuban Jews, both old and young, for his work with their community. At times he could be seen fighting back the tears of joy that come from knowing deep inside that in Cuba he had clearly fulfilled his mission in life.
"When you perform a mitzveh for someone, it is not so important that the person thank you," Szteinhendler says. "You must thank the person who allowed you to perform the mitzvah - and then you really feel alive."
Szteinhendler, who recently moved to Santiago, Chile, to head a congregation, is not alone in bringing to Cuba the vitality of the Argentine Jewish community, the largest in Latin America.
