Review of the Year (2003) in Foreign Countries: Latin America

By David Singer, Lawrence Grossman, Jeffrey Lesser

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2003

Brazil faced several economic, political and social crises in 2002, but none reached the level of those in Argentina or other Latin American nations. Brazil continues to host one of the most unequal societies in the world. Issues important to the Jewish community arose during this year's elections. Faith entering politics, admiration for Adolf Hitler, and anti-Israeli sentiment all pervaded Brazilian politics. The Argentinean economy suffered a severe crisis. Political instability also threatened the nation.
