An increased number of Argentine Jews reportedly are planning to move to Israel. The reports came as Argentina undergoes an economic crisis that led to the fall of President Fernando de la Rua’s government. In reaction, the Israeli government and the Jewish Agency for Israel, which long have viewed Argentina’s 200,000-strong community as a promising source of potential immigrants, agreed to increase the benefits offered to Argentine Jews who move to Israel.
