Street in Argentine City Named for Theodor Herzl

Jewish leaders from all parts of Argentina, and thousands of Jewish residents of the city of Eva Peron, capital of Buenos Aires province, participated in a ceremony renaming a street in the city for Theodor Herzl, founder of the Zionist Movement. Also present at the ceremony were Maj. Carlos Aloe, Governor of the province, and Dr. Arieh Kubovi, Israel Ambassador to Argentina.

In an address at the ceremony, Governor Aloe said that the renaming of the street for Dr. Herzl was meant not only as a tribute to a founder of a new state but also because of the Argentine people’s respect for the contributions of the Jewish community to Argentina.
