Anti-Semitism and Racism
With 230,000 Jews out of a total population of almost 34 million, Argentina has the largest Jewish community in Latin America. About 80 percent of the Jewish population live in Buenos Aires and its environs. Smaller communities may be found in most of the cities, including Rosario (25,000), Córdoba (10,000) and Santa Fé (5,000).
The Jewish community has been well-organized for decades, maintaining many educational, cultural and religious institutions, including a Hebrew and a Yiddish press, publishing houses, and an educational system from kindergarten through university. The major political organization is DAIA (Delegación de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas), which represents all communities and organizations to the authorities and is responsible for safeguarding the rights of members. AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) is the community's main internal organization representing the Ashkenazi community. The Sephardi community has three organizations of its own. The Vaad ha-Kehilot is the umbrella organization of all the communities in the provinces.
