When we first set foot in Cuba, we felt the very special nature of it. The people were
vibrant, the buildings magnificent and the music exhilarating. What ultimately sealed it for us was when one member of the Cuban Jewish community thanked us for “not forgetting” about them. We made a commitment to bring our communities together and began CHAI Missions, a Jewish non-profit organization committed to worldwide humanitarian effort, with an initial focus on Cuban Jews.
