Join the Jewish Federation of Somerset, Hunterdon & Warren Counties on a Mission to Cuba. 

March 12-19 2023


Cuba: A land frozen in time - so close, yet decades away. A Jewish community dedicated to its heritage across half a century of isolation and prevalent atheism. A rich and vibrant island culture, filled with dance and song, classic cars and donkey carts, rum, and cigars. Experience all this and more as we step back in time together.


• Explore Jewish heritage and history in Havana, Santa
Clara, Trinidad and Cienfuegos
• Meet with leaders and members of the communities and
learn about Judaism alive in Cuba today
• Celebrate Shabbat with the Sephardic Center community
• Savor the flavors of Cuban cuisine and dance to the beat
of the local music
• See Old Havana (Havana Vieja), a UNESCO World
Heritage Site
• Learn the art of cigar rolling from leaf to finished product
• Visit Finca Vigia, the place Hemingway called home for
over 20 years
and so much more!!!
