    A small community, mainly in the capital and in Sosua. Interesting history:

    I can hook you up. The older Rabbi has been very sick. But my best friend is Jewish and, knows all the details of the synagogue.

    In addition to the Santo Domingo mainstream community at Centro Israelita (809 535 6042) on Sarasota 21 between Lincoln and Churchill right before the shops in Plaza Universitaria, there is a new Chabad House a little further west on Sarasota, in Calle El Recodo #5 8A (809-533-8770) which is a small street off Sarasota between the bomba Texaco and the Hotel El Embajador.

    I think there are still services in Sosua one Friday per month.

    At Centro Israelita there are services at 0715 on Thursday mornings and at 1930 Friday evenings. They have a program of cultural activities a couple of evenings a week. The Religious Director (he is not a rabbi) is recovering from a stroke.

    At the Chabad House there are services on Saturday mornings
