B'nai Jeshurun NYC's Argentina Trip 2016: Testimonials

Thirty congregants of B'nai Jeshurun led by the Rabbi Marcelo Bronstein and the Director of Development, Lisa Steinberg, visited  Argentina on April 2016. The Jewish trip was organized by KosherLat Valeria Duek.

They spent almost a week in Buenos Aires and three days in El Calafate.

Learn more about the itinerary of B'nai Jeshurun in Argentina.

Below you will find the testimonial of Rabbi Marcelo Bronstein and some of the participants of the trip


We just finished one of the most successful community trips ever to Argentina. For us at congregation B'nai Jeshurun this trip was very important because of our Latin American roots.
Kosherlat and Valeria were superb. Everything was outstanding from the beginning to the end. Valeria's dedication to details and her presence during the trip made it clear that for her this is not only a business, this is personal and her love and dedication were evident during the whole trip.
I will be using her services again and again and I recommend her without hesitation. Our people came back filled with great memories and gratitude.

Rabbi Marcelo Bronstein
Congregation B'nai Jeshurun

"This will be a trip, an opportunity, of a lifetime".  This is what so many people said to me when they

heard my plans to travel to Buenos Aires with Rabbi Marcelo Bronstein, Development Director, Lisa Steinberg and a group of congregants from B'nai Jeshurun.

Led by Rabbi Marcelo and Lisa, our congenial and adventurous group shared unforgettable experiences ranging from sites both Jewish and non-Jewish. The direct exposure to and confrontation with the political history of Argentina was both disturbing and heart-wrenching.

However, the most meaningful aspect of the trip for me was seeing where our wonderful clergy at B'nai Jeshurun come from.  For twenty years I had heard their stories and about Bet El(synagogue) and its origins and to experience services there and meet the community was so special.  The services and warm welcome we received were unforgettable.

This wonderful trip was planned and arranged in conjunction with Valeria Duek of Kosherlat-Jewish Heritage Tours in Argentina.  Valeria was involved in every detail of the trip, no matter how large or small.; she is well organized and most congenial. The level of hotel, food and all other services she provided to the group were of the highest quality.  I have never before seen the personal level of attention that she provided to us from any other tour operator.  I recommend her very highly.

With many thanks and much gratitude,
Helena Diamant Glass

Argentina: Happy MALBEC World Day



It’s Malbec World Day today and with the World’s Best Sommelier Contest also taking place in Mendoza, it’s twice the occasion to toast with what is considered to be Argentina’s trade mark wine.

On APRIL 17, 1853, Domingo Fautino Sarmiento submits a proposal to broaden and diversify Argentina´s wine industry. A bill is submitted to the Provincial Legislature for the foundation of a Quinta Normal and a School of Agriculture. In this way, Malbec sets root in Mendoza.

The Malbec variety is introduced in Argentina,

Michel Pouget arrives in Mendoza in 1853, at the age of 32, with a contribution from the Quinta Normal of Chile, which included “a great deal of plants and seeds, among them several types of grape varieties, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Malbec.”.

In 1858 budget cuts lead to the closing of the Quinta Normal of Mendoza. Notwithstanding, Pouget struggles to continue with the project as a private undertaking, and keeps on experimenting with the purpose of adapting the French vines.

In 1863 the Phylloxera plague begins to take its toll on France. French vines are hard-hit and begin to deteriorate inexplicably in the southern Rhône.
In the meantime, Malbec adapts quickly to the varied terroirs offered by Argentina’s rugged landscape and begins to produce better wines than in its original land.

In 1889 the French market is severely affected by the devastating Phylloxera Plague.

By 1956, Argentina becomes the only country growing original Malbec vines of French origin.

In 1977, a superior Malbec is produced in oak casks and a star is born. Overseas, this causes quite a stir, surprising people everywhere.

In 2010, Argentine wine consumption experiences remarkable growth in the United States. Consumption of Malbec increases by an unprecedented 60% in 12 months. US consumers fall in love with Argentine Malbec, attracted by its singular characteristics: vigorous fruity flavors combined with a smooth texture that floods the palate.

2011: April 17 is chosen by Wines of Argentina to pay tribute to Malbec, a symbol of transformation for the Argentine wine industry and a wine star that shines all over the world.

Lechaim!
