The New Cuba: Travel, Business, and Cultural Exchanges

On November 25, Fidel Castro died at 90, allegedly having survived some 600 assassination attempts. The news of the Cuban dictator’s death did not even make the front page.

In truth, Fidel had been in poor health and had become largely irrelevant in recent years, while brother Raoul has been overseeing a transition being heralded as a new age for Cuba.

Timely as ever, ACE presents “The New Cuba: Travel, Business, and Cultural Exchanges” with Judy Kreith on Thursday, December 8, Noon at the Boulder JCC. To reserve a spot at this Lunch and Learn CLICK HERE.

“A few months ago, the first American cruise ship in 40 years arrived in Havana. Today, airlines are bidding for direct flights to the island, where WiFi parks have sprung up – all due to the opening up of relations between the US and Cuba,” Judy explains. She recently spoke at an international conference on Jewish life and history in Cuba, and will present an overview of the presentations, along with her impressions and experiences of a changing Cuba due to the enormous increase of visitors.

 Judy Kreith and has traveled extensively to Cuba to study music and dance. She and fellow filmmaker Robin Truesdale are currently completing a documentary about Jewish refugees who found a safe haven from the Holocaust in Cuba, titled “Forgotten Jewels, A Haven in Havana.”
