Shalom Argentina: Tracing the Jewish Gauchos and Agricultores, who incorporated “mate” without leaving aside their own traditions. Life in the JCA Colonies in Argentina

This presentation includes a brief history of the Jewish people after leaving Czarist Russia and arriving to a free Argentina, a place that would be their homeland to date. Their life in the colonies, different aspects of Jewish publishing in those settlements, the migration of future generations to Buenos Aires, and now, the “revival” of the colonies through tourist trips are all covered.

Rita Saccal has worked at the Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano “Marshall T. Meyer” in Buenos Aires since 1989 and has served as its Head Librarian since 1997.
