Tucumán Jewish Route
In the early 1900s, the first Jewish settlers coming from the province of Entre Ríos arrived in Tucumán. A few years later, they were already organized in small associations, cultural and artistic centers, synagogues and libraries, philanthropic and charity entities. The Israeli Society was founded in 1910, to later become the “Tucumán Israeli Union Society”, a philanthropic, cultural, educational and religious entity.
In San Miguel de Tucumán, you can visit the Tucumán Israeli Union Society, the Hebrew-Argentine Independence School, the Tucumán Zionist Union, the Israeli Cemetery, Jabad Lubavitch, the Sephardic Israeli Association, and, since 2010, you can visit the Mercedes Sosa Forest in the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael Kehila Cemetery, createdin honor of this great artist from Tucumán, who felt a deep love for the land and the people of Israel. This forest is the brother of that in the desert of Negev, Israel.
