Rosh Hashana Fest Prepares to Rock Buenos Aires

Jewish communities around the world on Thursday were preparing for the Jewish new year that starts on Sunday evening, each with its unique traditions and festivals.

In Buenos Aires, for instance, organizers of an annual fiesta called Rosh Hashana Urbano were putting the final touches on their event.

“Rosh Hashana Urbano is an activity, a strategic program the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee developed, that reaches out to mostly non-affiliated Jews with holiday activities in an open place,” said Diego Freedman, the man organizing the mix of concerts, stand-up performances and lectures. “We consider it to be part of the Jewish community center without walls.”
