Legend has it that the Jewish presence in Argentina dates back to the 16th-century, when a number of Portuguese conversos, seeking refuge from the Inquisition, settled there. These first Jews practiced in secret and soon became assimilated into Argentine society. By the late 19th-century, they were joined by boatloads of Russian Jewish immigrants—the vanguard of the Jewish gauchos. Today, the 200,000 Jews of Argentina comprise the largest Jewish community in Latin America (one of the largest in the world). Download PDF itinerary.
