The wife of a Jewish American, whose husband was sentenced to 15 years in prison for subversion by a Cuban court, launched a national campaign on Tuesday aimed at obtaining his release.

Judy Gross asked the crowd assembled at the Jewish Federations of North America’s General Assembly in Denver to lobby for the release of her husband, Alan Gross, who has been behind bars for almost two years.
