Memorial to Remember Victims of 1994 AMIA Bombing
On the morning of July 18, 1994, a car bomb destroyed the AMIA Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires, killing 85 and wounding 300. The deadliest terrorist attack ever in Argentina’s history came just two years after the 1992 bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires.
In observance of the 18th anniversary of this horrific event, AJC Latino and Latin American Institute, along with Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center (ATJC), the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and more than 30 other local Jewish organizations, will present a community-wide memorial ceremony. The program will take place on Wednesday, July 18 at 7 p.m. at ATJC, 20400 NE 30 Avenue, Aventura.
There will be presentations by the Honorable Chaim Shacham, Consul General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico, and the Honorable Miguel Talento, Consul General of Argentina. The keynote speaker will be Ana Weinstein, a survivor of the 1994 bombing.
