Jewish Life in Argentina
Speaker: Adriana M. Brodsky
Argentina has the largest Jewish population of South America, consisting of both Ashkenazi and Sephardic communities. Join the JMM as we continue our series of virtual presentations exploring global Jewish life with a trip to South America. During this presentation, we will explore both the history of this community and what Jewish life in Argentina looks like today.
This program will also stream live on our Facebook page here.
