Description

Community-Wide Solidarity Event

A Memorial Ceremony and a Call to Action

Monday, August 5, 2019
7:30 pm

Congregation Emanu-El of Westchester
Rye, New York

On July 18, 1994, the deadliest single attack on a Jewish Diaspora community since the Holocaust took place in Argentina. The Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, which housed many of Argentina’s key Jewish institutions, was blown apart by a suicide bomber. The blast killed 85 people and injured hundreds. Immediately following the attack, AJC sent a delegation to Buenos Aires to express solidarity with the Jewish community and to meet with government officials. AJC has been fighting ever since for justice for this horrific act of terrorism.
