Communities and religions

During the past 150 years, Argentina received and keeps on receiving millions of immigrants from Europe, Latin America and all over the world. Many arrive to Buenos Aires and decide to stay here: therefore Buenos Aires identity is multicultural, a feature that shows in the diversity and abundance of religious worships that coexist in the city.

In Argentina there is freedom of worships. The official religion, though, is the Roman Catholic Apostolic, represented by many churches.
There are also sees of other religions, among which we can highlight the central synagogue of the Jewish religion, unique see were rabbis of all the world are trained and the Mosque of Palermo, the largest Islamic temple in Latin America.
The variety of temples is part of the Buenos Aires heritage and tourist attraction.

Temple of the Argentine Israeli Congregation

Libertad 761
There a synagogue, the Israeli Congregation of the Argentine Republic (ICAR) and a museum of the Jewish history operate. The ICAR was the first Jewish association opened in the country.

In the museum you can see objects and documents of the Jewish community in Buenos Aires and a collection of religious art.

Orthodox Russian Church of the Holy Trinity
