Daniel Chejfec Attends Demonstration Remembering the Worst Terrorist Attack in Argentina’s History

2022 marks the 28th anniversary of the terrorist attack at the AMIA (Asociacion Mutual Israelita Argentina), the center of Jewish life in Buenos Aires. 85 people were killed and hundreds were injured in what was claimed to be the worst terrorist attack in Argentina’s history. AMIA was targeted because it was one of the most active Jewish communities in the world.

For the first time since the bombing, Jewish Federation of NEPA Executive Director, Daniel Chejfec, attended the demonstration in his native Buenos Aires to honor the memory of the victims. Read more about the worst terrorist attack in Argentina’s history.
