Daia Criticizes Formation of New Jewish Group to Fight Anti-semitism in Argentina

The DAIA, central Jewish representative body in Argentina, issued a statement today criticizing the establishment of the “Instituto Judio Argentino de Cultura Information,” a new Jewish group which announced the defense of Jewish rights in Argentina as its principal aim.

In its statement the DAIA points out that the formation of the new organization “is harmful to the unity of the Jewish community.” It emphasizes that the DAIA is the only legitimate representative of the community authorized to conduct the kind of activities which the “Instituto” has included in its program.
