Creating a Nation II
LATIN AMERICAN JEWS (Session 2 of 3)
In Israel, those Jews making Aliyah are often placed in a broad category of ""Latin Americans"" but this presentation will concentrate on Argentinians as well as relating to Brazilians and Mexicans. The Jews in all three case studies suffered due to serious political and economic situations but, by and large, developed vibrant community structures where the day schools and youth movements enabled a relatively easy integration into Israeli society. In the initial stages, kibbutzim absorbed many of them but this well-educated population soon moved to other parts of the country and have been positively identified by most Israelis for their vibrancy and initiatives.
