The DAIA, central representative organization of Argentine Jews, sent a message of congratulations to Provisional President Edouardo Lonardi and pledged the support of the Jewish community in carrying out the democratic principles enunciated by his revolutionary government.

In a message signed by DAIA president Dr. Moises Goldmann and secretary Dr. Leon Lapaco, the Jewish organization expressed “profound satisfaction” over the pledges of the Provisional Government of the “integration of the Argentina family without exclusions on the grounds of national origin, religion or political opinions.” The DAIA “offers its cooperation in the joint effort to hasten the achievement of the ideals of liberty which would benefit all citizens.”

Meanwhile, Israel Ambassador Dr. Arieh Kubovi called on Air Commodore Julio Krause, interim Foreign Minister in the Provisional Government, to inform him that Israel had granted recognition to the regime.
