Chapter Summary

This chapter seeks to develop three themes in the form of preliminary hypotheses. First, it attempts to grasp the particular phenomenon of the limited impact of anti-Semitism in contemporary Brazil. Judaic historiography and sociology in the 20th century have been especially sensitive to anti-Semitic issue in the numerous societies where Jews live. However, they have shown very little concern in understanding why, in certain societies, anti-Semitism is slight or nearly non-existent. Secondly, the chapter indicates certain characteristics of Brazilian Judaism generated by integration in local culture and society. Finally, it highlights certain dominant patterns in the studies-sparse as they are-of contemporary Brazilian Judaism in a comparative perspective with the Argentine case.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; Brazilian Judaism; Brazilian non-anti-semite sociability; contemporary Brazil; Jews; Judaic studies
