About the Centro Israelita Sionista de Costa Rica:

In August 2000, The American Jewish Committee and the Centro Israelita Sionista de Costa Rica (the Jewish Zionist Center of Costa Rica), established a cooperative association to advance the interests of the Costa Rican and American Jewish communities.

The agreement with CISCR, Costa Rica's central Jewish organization representing Costa Rica's 2,500 Jews, came about after the AJC Board of Governors met in San Jose, Costa Rica to help build a new community center.

"The American and Costa Rican Jewish communities share not only our rich Jewish heritage, but also a deep commitment to democratic values and human rights," said AJC President Bruce M. Ramer.

"This agreement emphasizes our shared communal interests and the importance of Costa Rica to the United States as well as Israel." Costa Rica is one of only two countries to maintain its embassy in Jerusalem.

"Our new relationship with the American Jewish Committee is an expression of support for our own task as well as an acknowledgement of the historic commitment that the Costa Rican community has been fulfilling," said Mr. Julio Klerszenson, President of the CISCR.

AJC and the Centro Israelita Sionista de Costa Rica work together to strengthen Jewish communal life; deepen bilateral relations between Costa Rica and the United States; enhance Israel's security, peace and diplomatic normalization; combat anti-Semitic and other hate groups in their respective societies and strengthen the forces of democratic pluralism and mutual understanding.

They also jointly advance the cause of human rights; promote education and memory of the Holocaust and counteract the dissemination of Holocaust revisionism; and encourage greater dialogue and understanding within the Diaspora and between Israelis and Jews in other lands.

B'nai B'rith de Costa Rica

Although the lodge became inactive during the 1980s, community members are currently working to re-activate this group.
