International Jewish Cemetery Project - Argentina also see Moises Ville and Monigotes
Located in west central Santa Fe Province, the 2000 population was 400 with ten Jews. 1970 population was 800 of which 90% was Jewish. The town dates from 1904 when the CJA provided each immigrant with 75 hectares, some tools, and a two-room house with a kitchen. All was part of Moises Ville until 2004. In 1948 a drought caused some of the population to leave. Burials were in Moises Ville, 26 km away. The town is 8 km from Palacios and 16 km south of Monigotes. The last minion in the synagogue was the 1970s. [December 2003]
