“JNF’s exclusive tour to Cuba for President’s Society members was an amazing experience! It was remarkable that we could visit a completely different society and Jewish community so close to our country.  Not to be missed!” – Mark Engel

“Our trip to Cuba with JNF was a fantastic adventure. Highlights of the trip included spending Tu BiShvat with the largest Jewish congregation in Cuba, dancing the night away in great night clubs, dining on delicious food, visiting exciting avant-garde art galleries, and riding throughout Havana in 1950’s classic American cars. All this plus more, while staying in first class luxury accommodations. What more could you ask for?” – Ben Gutmann
