Chapter Summary

The concept of transnationalism has acquired multiple meanings according to diverse theoretical approaches and their specific focus on the variables of space and time. Transnationalism refers indeed to the new conditions derived from the changes brought about by the processes of globalization. It is one's contention that transnationalism may be seen both as a key concept for approaching the historical development of Latin American Jewish ethnonational diasporas and their present changing condition. Latin American Jewish life followed as well ulterior pattern of autonomous development nourished by new relations with external centers. Historical conditions of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries compelled the organized Jewish world to look for new places of residence and thus both colonization and immigration led collective efforts to channel Jewish life into Latin America.

Keywords: Latin American Jewish life; transnational pattern
