Jessica Cymerman was born in Buenos Aires (as was the Tango). She is a professional Jewish tour guide, specialized in all aspects of the past and present Jewish life in Argentina.
In 2005 she created a project called “The Jewish experience in Argentina.”
In May of 2020 she started producing Zoom sessions to delve deeper into the relationship between Argentina and Judaism while at the same time creating unique and diverse virtual experiences.
She invites you to explore Argentina´s Jewish stories together. She is known for her passion and engaging presentation, and loves to share her country, delighting groups and audiences with her take on the history, culture, customs, and way of life in Jewish Argentina.
Dani is originally from New Jersey but fell in love with Spain when he spent his junior year of college studying in Madrid. He moved to the island of Mallorca in 2014, where he learned of the taboo history of the island’s descendants of Jewish-Conversos – named “Chuetas.” He became involved with the local Jewish community of the Balearic Islands and began focusing on community building.
In 2018, together with his wife Carla, he founded Limud Mallorca and they have run over 50 successful events promoting diversity and inclusion in the small yet growing Jewish community. He has been an elected member of the synagogue board since August 2018 and last December founded Jewish Majorca – an educational tourism company that offers in-person as well as virtual presentations and tours to Jewish Heritage sites around the island and the world.
We are going around the world with our Hot Air Zoom Balloon every Thursday.

The Fellows were actively engaged, asking great questions, and the many many many “this was awesome!” comments in the chat box at the end of the session testify to how much they enjoyed themselves. I absolutely love your presenting style, Dani. You’re very open, personable, and immediately make everyone feel at ease – no small feat given we’re all on screen. I so appreciate it!
The virtual tour was arranged as a Mother’s Day present from my son. It was wonderful! From start to finish, Dani was a delightful tour guide who brought the history of Jewish Majorca alive. Highly recommend!!
By far the best virtual tour I’ve ever taken – I will take any tour you offer. Thank you Dani!

I recently had a chance to “visit” Jewish Majorca, and had a really great experience. We zoomed on five consecutive Sunday afternoons, and I learned an amazing amount. I’d read a couple of books about the conversos, but the knowledge Dani, our tour guide, brought, and the places he took us really made things come to life. (He took us into a hidden tunnel, likely used by “secret Jews” to join others for forbidden services.) I looked forward to every zoom-day, and each one Dani presented was different, culminating with a cooking demo by his wife Carla, from their own kitchen. I recommend this series to any history buff; it will give you context, deepen your knowledge, and definitely make you want to return to Majorca in person.
