Alan Gross, a contractor that the U.S. State Department says was assisting Cuban Jews, marked a year in a Cuban jail. Cuban authorities detained Gross on Dec, 3 2009 on his way out of the country. Gross' family and State Department officials says he was in the country on a U.S. Agency for International Development contract to help the country's Jewish community, numbering about 1,500, to communicate with other Jewish communities through the Internet.
