Dr. Jose Miller, a physician who served as president of Cuba's Jewish community for two decades and shepherded a revival in the country's Jewish life, died Feb. 27 in Havana after a brief illness. He was 80. Dr. Miller's years of leadership coincided with the government's decision in the early 1990s to change its character from atheistic to secular, eliminating the persecution of people who participated in religious activities and allowing the open practice of Judaism and other faiths.
