Puerto Rico is home to one of Kulanu’s newest partner communities which came to us in the last week of August 2018. This is a small community named Congregacion Ahavas Torah de Puerto Rico that claims descendancy from crypto-Jews, and was established a decade ago by Rabbi Larry Goldstein, a friend of Kulanu who passed away four years ago. They currently study with rabbis in New Jersey via Skype and visitors to their community, and they meet in various members’ homes. They are struggling to survive after Hurricane Maria in 2017.
