IDEALS, TENACITY AND

editor Walter Ackerman
IDEALS, TENACITY AND YOUTH — THE CENTRO HEBREO IONA Gustavo Daniel Perednik Centro Hebreo lona is a traditional community center in Buenos Aires, comprising synagogue, youth movement, kindergarten and elementary school, and several institutes of informal education. It burst onto the Jewish local scene in 1979, developing rapidly into a potent force in the Argentine Jewish community. In attempting to document its inception, several difficulties arise. Firstly, the documentation available is limited. Written material about the origins of the Centro Hebreo lona cannot be found in public files or libraries. Without the historical perspective which would render that research feasible, this investigation involves delv-ing into letters, leaflets, books, and miscellaneous material produced by the institution during its first months of existence. There is no paucity of documents; on the contrary, lona has produced a large volume of written  material, probably more than any comparableinstitution. 1  But no systematic filing was carried out, which would have facilitated access to the required information. This first difficulty was surmounted by my having first- hand knowledge of the where-abouts of research material. These include, for instance, several works of historical research written by members of the institution2 and various publications ( not always friendly) that referred to lona from an historical perspective. 3 Although my personal memory  of Ionás inception enabled me to overcome these difficulties, it in turn led to the problem of subjective versus objective perspective of these events. This is a paradox of 1 For example it published the following pamphlets between 1979 and 1980:  Raison detre,  Who are we?  Ioná proposes,  Baruch Habah,  Did yoi see...?  Iona, what is that? the bulletin Kol Ioná which by 1987 had published  more than 200 issues, and the organizations Anniversary magazines. 2 Articles on the history of Ioná appeared in the Anniversary magazines  and in a lengthy research paper written by the group Iajad ( seven authors coordinated  by Diana Laufer) of the adult department ( Mekorot) ( Buenos Aires, 1992). 3 See Mundo Israelita ( 17 October 1981), Moshe  Wainstein, in Nueva  Presencia and La Voz Judía ( an answer to Baruch Steinberg). 182 Chapter Home  | TOC t t t
