direction of Eliezer Oranowski.
The officials in charge of the
census said they were certain
that there were other Jews in
the country who were not
enumerated.
Of the total of Jewish fami-
lies registered in the census,
804, comprising 1,973 individ-
uals, live in this capital city.
Among these families, 536 de-
clared themselves as Ashken-
azic, and 268 as Sephardim.
There are 79 Ashkenazic fami-
lies, including 192 individuals,
in the rest of the country;
while the Sephardim in the rest
of Cuba, outside Havana, num-
ber 139 families with 421 in-

A breakdown by ages of the
statistics for Havana shows that
212 of the Jews here are chil-

7-25; 1,062 are aged 25-60; and
496 are aged 60 or over. (Ac-
cording to the American Jewish
Year Book, the pre Castro
Jewish population of Cuba num-
bered "somewhat over 8,000)."

TEL AVIV — The offices of
the Reparations Corporation in
Tel Aviv were closed Tuesday
and those in West Germany re-
duced to a minimum, following
placement of orders for prod-
ucts from West Germany under
the reparations agreement for
the next two years.
Under the agreement, Israel
can receive products until 1965,
payable through West German
reparations funds. The offices
in West Germany, hereafter,
will be dealing almost entirely
with consular activities and pre-
sentation of Israeli problems to
West German officials.
