Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses some aspects of the political, socioeconomic and demographic infrastructure underlying the development of Jewish culture and identification in contemporary society. While mainly oriented toward understanding the constraints and opportunities that may limit or stimulate the development of Jewish associative life at the global level, the chapter illustrates the more general issues through some examples concerning Jews in the Latin American context. Western societies-while initiating significant military action aimed at the Islamic world-have also pursued other avenues of political advocacy and persuasion. These attempts to export the Western ethos and to try to incorporate and moderate the influences of Islamic hostility have been crowned with only very limited success. The chapter evaluates the relations between population trends and the social environment across countries within the American continent.

Keywords: contemporary Jewish global scene; Islamic societies; Jewish autonomy; Latin America; Western societies
