James Carter Happy in Havana

Former US President James Carter, visited the Archbishopric of Havana and the Council of the Jewish Community of Cuba (CHC) on Monday, as part of his activities during his stay on the island at the invitation of the Cuban government.

The 87 year-old Democrat politician arrived in this city on Monday for a three-day visit, during which he spoke with President Raul Castro and other Cuban authorities.

After being received by CHC President Adela Dworin and other executives of the institution, the visitor toured the Youth Center and other areas of the Jewish Council.

The characteristics of the CHC, the amount of members, and aspects of the practice of their religion, were the focus of her conversation with Carter, according to Dworin.

At the Archbishopric of Havana, in the capital’s historic area, Carter was received by Cardinal Jaime Ortega, Archbishop of Havana.

This is the second time that the founder of the Carter Center travels to the Caribbean island. The first visit took place in May, 2002, which turned him into the first former US President to visit Cuba since the triumph of the Revolution in 1959.

Cuba’s President Raul Castro received James Carter, as part of this private visit.

Carter will return to his country today, Wednesday.
