Chapter Summary

Approaching Jewish identities in Latin America while focusing on the Mexican experience implies 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. The emergence of new models of relations between communities and the center(s) and even new processes of decentralization shed light onto common trends in the Jewish world and singular developments in Mexican and Latin American Jewish communities. The current space of Latin American Jewish identities that emerges from the analysis focused on the Mexican case, shows a permanent pluralization of identification and of interactions with the surrounding world and amidst the Jewish world itself. The emergence of new models of relations between communities and the center(s) and new processes of decentralization shed light onto common trends in the Jewish world and singular developments in Mexican and Latin American Jewish communities.

Keywords: globalization; Latin American Jewish identities; Mexican Jewish population
