Chapter Summary

Jewish communal life today is founded on a sophisticated organizational system. This chapter suggests that the application of a theoretical sociological model bolstered by a comparative methodology within the context of communal life in Argentina and Brazil, two countries deeply affected by the processes of globalization since the end of the 1980s. To accomplish this research goal, it is important to maintain a comparative perspective regarding the research developed in this field in the United States. The study presented here encompasses three main areas: communal work and planning; Jewish leadership; and Jewish continuity and communal crisis. The comparison between Jewry in United States and in South America shows not only three different models of Jewish continuity, but it also highlights the importance of deepening the systematic comparative research in Jewish communal life in Latin America.
