Latin American Jewish Identities: Past and Present Challenges. The Mexican Case in a Comparative Perspective

By Judit Bokser Liwerant

Brill Books, 2008

Approaching Jewish identities in Latin America while focusing particularly on the Mexican experience implies different conceptual challenges derived from the inner diversity of the region and its different patterns of historical development, as well as from the current impact of globalization processes. Latin American Jewish communities are characterized by common grounds while at the same time encompassing much diversity in their experiences. Shared features and singularities reflect the way the national, regional and global dimensions interact, and the different modalities in which they come together and intermingle with the particular, and yet global, condition of the Jewish people.
