Roughly 50,000 Argentine Jews recently gathered in the streets of Buenos Aires for Rosh Hashanah Urbano (RHU), the largest Jewish cultural event in South America. Federation’s overseas partner, the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), launched the free event several years ago as a way to bring unaffiliated Jews back to Jewish life in a welcoming and pluralistic environment. The day included musical bands, food stands, a children’s area, art exhibits and much more. The event is now organized by Limud Buenos Aires, a JDC-founded and supported organization that presents a variety of Jewish learning events year-round.
