Jewish Colonization Association (ICA), philanthropic association to assist Jews in depressed economic circumstances or countries of persecution to emigrate and settle elsewhere in productive employment, founded by Baron Maurice de Hirsch in 1891. It was incorporated in London as a joint-stock company whose other shareholders were Baron Edmond de Rothschild, J. Goldsmid, Sir Ernest Joseph Cassel, F. D. Mocatta, Benjamin S. Cohen, S. H. Goldschmidt, and Salomon Reinach. De Hirsch was president until his death in 1896. De Hirsch's immediate plan envisaged a mass emigration of the Jews from countries in Europe, where they were persecuted, to Argentina, though circumstances forced ICA to give priority to the various needs of Jews in Europe.

In 1889 ICA aided Jewish immigrants in Argentina who purchased approximately 100,000 hectares of land in Santa FM. They established the colony of Moisesville, and created a number of new settlements in the provinces of Santa Fe, Entre Rios, La Pampa, and Buenos Aires, mainly before World War I. The colonists were given equipment, instruction, and credit, and a network of schools was established.
