List of Argentine Jews

The history of the Jews in Latin America began with seven sailors arriving in Christopher Columbus' crew. Since then, the Jewish population of Latin America has risen to more than 500,000 — most of whom live in Argentina, with large communities also present in Brazil and Mexico. The following is a list of some prominent Argentine Jews:
