Download PDF for this date

The Latin American Jewish Congress met here today to express sympathy and solidarity with the earthquake victims in Nicaragua. The Congress appealed to Jewish communities in Latin America to cooperate with local aid campaigns and cabled its affiliates in Central America requesting data about Managua Jewish community’s situation. The Managua Jewish community consisted of about 30 families forming Congregation Israelita de Nicaragua with a social center containing a synagogue and primary school. No information as to its fate was available here today.
