Biographical Note

Dr. Frederick Solomon was a progressive rabbi active in Havana’s Cuban-Jewish community during the 1950s and 60s. Although his origins are unclear, Dr. Solomon appears to have escaped Nazi -occupied Europe for London and eventually established a congregation in Havana, Cuba. As a member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, Dr. Solomon served as the rabbi of Temple Beth Israel in the Vedado suburb of Havana, where he wrote sermons and hosted religious services for his congregation, a part of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations. The rabbi was also active in the Jewish Progressive movement, frequently communicating with representatives of The World Union for Progressive Judaism throughout the 1950s in an attempt to officially associate his congregation with the organization.
