Community

We were founded in 1862 with the goal of establishing our community life based on the tenants of the progressive Jewish movement of the time. The “Congregacion Israelita de la Republica Argentina” (CIRA – English: Jewish Congregation of Argentina) was the incubator for the top community institutions of the nation.

Our main minyan is egalitarian, and follows a Reform prayer style. We attempt to service the needs of every person according to the most noble, pluralistic and inclusive values, with the goal of creating a full Jewish life. 

We also offer a daily traditional minyan following liturgy used since the beginning of our congregation.

We invite you to participate in our weekly egalitarian Kabbalat Shabbat services on Fridays at 7:30 PM. Daily services are scheduled in our Chapel. Please email us to check on schedule and location.

Please note that we need to check Passport and IDs at the door for security reasons. It’s better if you let us know in advance of your planned attendance by phone or email.
