Two Cuban Jewish leaders visited jailed American contractor Alan Gross and said they found him in "good spirits."

Adela Dworin, head of Cuba's Jewish community, and David Prinstein, president of the Patronato Synagogue and Jewish community vice president, spent two hours with Gross on September 27 in the military hospital where he is imprisoned, according to reports.

The visit was to mark the High Holidays. Gross reportedly told his visitors that he fasted on Yom Kippur, and that he lifts weights and walks daily on the hospital grounds.
