A rabbi said Cuban officials placed him under house arrest for three weeks. Rabbi Brian Kent, 38, arrived in Cuba on Oct. 11 on a tourist visa. On the third day of his visit, Kent said, two men approached him on the street, walked him back to his hotel and searched his belongings. They accused him of spying and told him he was prohibited from meeting with more than three people at a time or presiding over Jewish services, he added.
