Explore the history of the Jewish people in Argentina, from its colonial times to modernity. Go beyond religious traditions and know how politics and the broad history of Argentina shaped and made its Jewish population into what it is today. 

DAY 01

Once neighbourhood, amia, pasteur subway station, jewish museum, libertad synagogue

  • See the mural in the Clínicas Hospital remembering victims of AMIA with your Buenos tour guide. 

  • Then, visit AMIA itself, known as "the mother institution" of Jewish life in Argentina, which was targeted by a terrorist attack in the 90s. Go through Once, a Jewish neighbourhood and bulk trading district, strolling through synagogues, quinceañera party supply shops and fabric vendors. 

  • Visit the "Diversity Corner": a place where just by standing 5 minutes, you'll witness all the diversity BA can showcase. 

  • Proceed to the Jewish Museum and the Libertad Synagogue, the first one in the city, inaugurated in 1932. 

  • Discuss the "crypto-Jews" who escaped the European Inquisition by coming to Latin America, and how the population became organized as waves of Jewish immigrants entered the country in the late 1800s and much more. Talk about the history of Jewish immigration in Buenos Aires, the Jewish Gauchos, the only American Pogrom,  the communist heritage of the URRS Jews, the "disappeared" of the last Argentine dictatorship and the challenges faced today by our community.
