Jewish Heritage trips to Argentina

A trip to warm your soul

Home to the largest Jewish Community
in Latin America

#1 Jewish Heritage destination in South America

The Jewish community in Argentina dates back to 140 years ago. In 1862, La Congregacion Israelita de Buenos Aires held the first minyan. By the early 1900s, there were 100,000 Jewish immigrants in Argentina, mostly from Eastern Europe. Some established themselves in the Pampas, the fertile lowlands of Argentina, becoming gauchos (cowboys) who established Jewish rural agricultural communities. The Jewish community in Argentina today is the largest in Latin America. Of a total population of 41.45 million people, about 240,000 are Jewish, the majority of which live in Buenos Aires. There are approximately 70 synagogues, 60 Jewish educational institutions, and 20 kosher restaurants in Buenos Aires.
