Argentina is a country rich with heritage and Jewish Roots. The Jewish
Penicillin recipe most common in Argentina is a stew based soup that is
thicker than most chicken soups.
When treating colds in pregnancy, the soup can be thinned with the addition of some chicken stock. Chicken soup offers a rich combination of protein and essential vitamins and nutrients for healing colds in pregnancy.
The history of the Jews of Argentina goes back to the days of the Spanish Inquisition and Portuguese Inquisition, when Jews fleeing persecution settled in what is now Argentina.
Many of the Portuguese traders in the Viceroyalty of the Río de la Plata were Jewish, but an organized Jewish community developed only after Argentina gained independence from Spain in 1810. At that time, Jews from France and other parts of Western Europe began to settle in Argentina.
The Argentine borders were closed to immigration at the start of World War II. In 1938, the borders were opened for people trying to escape German persecution, but immigration was strictly watched and monitored. After the war, Argentina allowed Nazis to take refuge in the country, notably Adolf Eichmann. Eichmann was later abducted and taken to Jerusalem for trial. After Eichmann’s trial, many Jews started moving out of Argentina and into Israel.
The Jews of Argentina were targets of two major terrorist attacks, both of which remain unsolved: the Israeli Embassy was bombed in March 1992, killing 32 people, and in July 1994 the Jewish community center (AMIA) in Buenos Aires was bombed as well, killing 85 people and wounding over 200.
