Jewish tour of the City and Province of Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires hosts the largest Jewish community in Latin America, and it is considered the 6th city in the world, outside of Israel, with the most Jewish people.
While the traditional orthodox Jewish neighborhood is Once, today the Jewish people of Buenos Aires are scattered throughout the city. The same applies to temples, schools, cultural centers, restaurants, and bakeries. In the city, you can visit the Jewish Museum of Buenos Aires next to the Israeli CongregationSynagogue of the Argentine Republic, widelyknown as Templo Libertad (Freedom Temple), which is the oldest in Buenos Aires and the most important in the country; the Israeli-Argentine Mutual Association or AMIA, the Gran Templo de Paso (Paso Great Temple), the Hebrew Argentine Society, the Natan Gesang School, the Buenos AIres Shoa Museum, and many other landmarks.
Buenos Aires has a club of tourist service providers associated with the Buenos Aires Kosher Club, which offers special services and information for kashrut practitioners planning on visiting our city.
In 1981, the Jewish Colonization Association (JCA) established in the province of Buenos Aires the first rural settlement and called it “Colonia Mauricio”. While in Santa Fe the Moisés Ville colony already existed, its members became contractually linked to the JCA later on. Near the Carlos Casares railway station, Mauricio started to develop. It is one of the old rural settlements that maintains most of the features from that period. From Carlos Casares, you can visit the towns of Mauricio Hirsch, Algarrobo and Moctezuma. These lands were part of the old colony.
