Two Videos: Mission to Cuba and The Classic Cars of Cuba

Today's restoration of US diplomatic relations with Cuba brought back memories of my visit to Havana in March 2009. 

Roz and I were two of the 25 Long Islanders on a government-approved mission to Cuba. During the five days of this adventure, I also documented the classic American cars still operating on the streets of Havana.

Here are the two videos that I created from this amazing trip.

Mission to Cuba

In March 2009, 25 Long Islanders went on a government-approved mission to explore the Jewish community in Cuba. This nine-minute film captures photo highlights of this mission including views of Havana, the three major synagogues, a Jewish cemetery founded in 1906, and the Cuban people.
