Delegación de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas

For the commune in Romania, see Daia. For the Roman Emperor whose birth name was "Daia", see Maximinus.

DAIA (Delegación de Asociaciones Israelitas Argentinas) is the umbrella organization of Argentina's Jewish community. As such, it represents the community in official events and conducts its contacts with authorities. DAIA is the Argentine affiliate of the World Jewish Congress (WJC), the world-wide umbrella organization of Jewish communities.

DAIA has been strongly involved in fighting Antisemitism in Argentina, and claiming for justice in the 1994 AMIA bombing (AMIA being the body that manages the main operations of the Jewish community in Buenos Aires and other cities, namely education, hospitals, retirement houses, and burial).

In 2007, the group reported that antisemitic attacks in Argentina increased by 32% in 2006 over 2005.[1]
