Be a part of the lively Cuban Jewish spirit.

Celebrate a Shabbat in Havana like you’ve never done before with a Jewish community that has been revived from near extinction. Share in an unforgettable experience of daily life and culture on the island today.

When JDC reentered Cuba in the early ‘90s, the Jews were dispersed and community life was nonexistent.  Over the past 20 years, JDC has worked to help rebuild the Jewish community from the ground up. 

Today, Jewish life on the island is thriving—with Cuban flair.  Jews are celebrating Shabbat, conducting Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and enjoying Jewish holidays.  With the help of JDC, the community provides its neediest members with vital assistance, including food, medicine, and companionship.

Join us for this fascinating trip to see legendary Havana, and learn about the Jewish life realities of today.

Logging In With One of Your Social Web Site Logins

Instead of trying to remember a bunch of special username/password combinations to log in to different web sites that you visit, you can now link your account on this web site to your account on one (or more) of the social media web sites shown and log in with the same username/password combination that you use on that social web site to log in to our site.

To provide this connection in a secure manner, we use Gigya, a social network connection provider that works behind the scenes to make safe, secure connections between user accounts on different systems, such as popular social media web sites like Facebook and web sites like ours where you are actively involved in social issues and causes.

Each time you log in, Gigya uses special application programming interfaces (APIs) to establish the connection between the sites and validate your username and password. Neither our web site or Gigya receive or store your social network passwords.

In addition to reducing the number of logins you have to remember, connecting your accounts can make it quicker and easier to share an activity or cause you feel passionately about from our web site with your friends on your social web sites.

You can break the connection between your accounts at any time.
