2000 Protest Bombing of Jewish Community Center; Urge Government Find, Punish Criminals

Two thousand persons assembled in the bomb-damaged Jewish community center in La Plata yesterday to denounce anti-Jewish violence and demand that the government exert more energy toward finding and punishing the persons responsible for the bomb outrage. The community center was heavily damaged by an explosion last week. Two members of its maintenance staff were slightly injured. Speakers at the protest meeting included Pedro Gravier, president of the La Plata Jewish community; Enrique Mindling, of the local youth organization; Nehemias Resnitzky, vice president of the DAIA, central representative body of Argentine Jews, and Simja Sneh, representing the Argentine Federation of Jewish Communities.
