By Jeffrey Lesser

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2004

Brazil had strong, ongoing trade relations with Israel in the areas of agriculture, technology, and water usage. Racism is extremely noticeable in social and economic spheres, particularly against those of African descent. On the other hand, there was little open antisemitism. Brazil hosts an ethnically diverse Jewish community, which formed primarily after 1920. There were numerous local and national community organizations to represent Jews in Brazil.
