Monument of Jewish Immigration to Mexico

DSC03758On November 14, 2013 the Central Committee of Jewish Community in Mexico unveiled a monument to commemorate 100 years of Jewish immigration to Mexico. The impressive monument which occupies an area of 6 X 6 x 5.10 meters is a creation of architect Jacobo Micha Mizrhai and is located in the beautiful boulevard of the Port of Veracruz facing the sea where the ships entered.

The meaning of the monument: It is built mostly with basalt stone, material used in the old buildings in the Middle East, but of Mexican origin. The stone wall with a series of holes represents Mexico, where it is written with Hebrew letters “Sunrise in Veracruz” On the East side there are 100 blocks of irregular shape passing through the wall and being transformed into hundreds of elongated and refined pieces representing the fruition of the Jewish people in this country.


ףלא ול-יהיו םישרפו בכר המלש ףסאיו  
םישרפ ףלא רשע-םינשו בכר תואמ-עבראו
:םלשוריב ךלמה-םעו בכרה ירעב םחיניו

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)
