BUENOS AIRES -- Argentinean Rabbi Sergio Bergman won a seat on the Buenos Aires municipal legislature on Monday, leading the vote tally with 45 percent of the votes.

Bergman garnered triple the number of votes of the candidate who came in second place, Juan Cabandié of the Victory Front Party,  who won 14 percent of the vote.

Senior rabbi of the traditional Congregacion Israelita Argentina, Bergman is the founder of Active Memory, a group that demonstrated every Monday for a decade in front of Argentina’s Supreme Court seeking justice for the victims of the 1994 bombing of the AMIA Jewish center.
