Jewish Buenos Aires Tour
Did you know that Argentina has the largest Jewish Community in Latin America?

Did you know that in Buenos Aires there is a Kosher McDonald’s?

Did you know that Police stations located in the traditionally Jewish neighborhoods of Buenos Aires have their signs written in Hebrew?

This tour is not only about visiting meaningful sites, but more about learning and diving into the History of the Jewish immigration to Argentina, deeply exploring the tragic episodes that dramatically changed the community and celebrating the active dynamic life of the Argentinean Jewish Community as it is today.

During the itinerary, we will visit the place where the Israeli Embassy was located before a terrorist bombing attack destroyed the building in 1992. We will see the Israeli Embassy Plaza, a memorial devoted to the victims of that cruel attack.

Then, we will visit the traditional Jewish neighborhood of "ONCE" (ON-SAY). There, we will visit the new AMIA building (Mutual Association Israelite Argentina - Community Center).  AMIA was attacked in 1994, leaving a tragic balance of 85 victims.

Then, we will visit the most emblematic synagogues of the area: The Great Temple of Paso St. (Ashkenazi; built in 1929) and Shaare Tefilha (Sephardic; opened in 1936).

Last, but not least, we will learn about the permanent exhibition "Memory Illustrated" located in the subway station Pasteur-AMIA. This exhibition aims to pay tribute to the victims of the attack to AMIA as well as teach the new generations about what happened that day a few meters away.

If you have a particular interest, we will do our best to please you!
