Wednesday, July 17, 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. at AJC headquarters
On July 18, 1994, Argentina suffered the deadliest single attack on a Jewish Diaspora community since the Holocaust. The Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA) Jewish Center in Buenos Aires, which housed many of Argentina’s key Jewish institutions, was attacked by a suicide bomber – killing 85 people and injuring 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. Jason Isaacson led this delegation.
Join us 25 years after AMIA, as we come together to remember the victims, hear from Jason about his experience in the wake of AMIA, and learn about Hezbollah, the Iranian-sponsored terrorist group that perpetrated this attack but was never held accountable.
