The Jewish Museum of Buenos Aires was inaugurated in 1967 under the initiative of Dr. Salvador Kibrick, member of the Israeli Congregation of Argentine Republic, the first jewish institution in our country, established in 1862. It is located next to the impressive Templo Libertad Synagogue. Uniquely, this museum narrates the stories of the immigrants, the traditions and the Jewish colonies. Commited to transmit what is characteristic of the Jewish people, it presents an interactive tour through a permanent collection in constant dialogue with the present aiming to create a link between the exhibition and interpretation.
The museum tells through objects, images and words, the life of the Jews in Argentina and in Europe, before and during the Second World War. Among other things, there is a collection of photographs of the German Heinz Jöst from 1941 in the Warsaw ghetto. Building originally built for the Italo Argentina Electricity Company. Currently, the Shoah Museum works with the task of transmitting the teachings of the Shoah. The Memory of the Holocaust Foundation carries out a vast educational task, aimed at raising awareness in society about the serious consequences of racism and xenophobia.
The Synagogue of the Israelite Congregation of the Argentine Republic, also known as Templo Libertad, was the first synagogue built in Buenos Aires and the oldest in the country. It was declared a National Historic Monument in December 2000.
The Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina, AMIA, is a center of the Jewish community. Its main objectives are to promote the welfare and development of the Argentine Jewish community, and to keep the traditions and values of that community alive. On July 18, 1994, the headquarters of AMIA was the target of an attack through a car bomb. It was the largest terrorist attack in Argentine history, with 85 people dead and 300 wounded. The reconstruction of the new building, which began in August 1995, cost just over 8 million dollars. The distance from the building block allowed to keep in view the scars left by the old building. On May 26, 1999, the new building was inaugurated
