The Many Faces of BAMA
Today, one of the most important Jewish community institutions in Argentina is BAMA – an institution providing educational training, consultation and support services to all Jewish schools, youth movements and informal education sites throughout the country.
Founded in May 2001 with generous support from UJA Federation NY and the Jewish Agency, BAMA served as the central address in rehabilitating the educational system following the financial shock-waves cascading through the country. From the onset, BAMA has been the core organization that prepares and applies programs focused on the sustainability of Jewish identity and connection to the State of Israel.
Today, BAMA receives support from other organizations including the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference).
