Baking Bread for the Buenos Aires Dead

It’s been nearly 18 years since the fatal Jewish community center bombing

Print Email

It’s a week before the 18th anniversary of the bombing of the Buenos Aires Jewish Community Center that killed 85, and to help commemorate the occasion, that center, known as AMIA, has launched a campaign called “Pan de la Memoria”—bread of memory. Basically, as you can see, you make bread to share, so as never to forget. There’s also a list of the victims, and—¡claro que sí!—a recipe (margarina? really?).

As a quick refresher, Interpol has fingered seven Iranian officials of varying prominence for ordering Hezbollah to bomb AMIA. An Argentine prosecutor named Alberto Nisman has tried to indict several more, including former Iranian President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani. Despite that, Iran continues to block a substantial inquiry and denies that any of its citizens were responsible.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
