Chapter Summary

The future of the Jewish community was most recently the subject of doubts and soul-searching following the 1994 bombing of the AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina, or Argentine Jewish Mutual Aid Society), and again during the 2001-2002 economic crisis that severely hit the middle classes to which most Argentine Jews belong. In reality, for the majority of Jewish immigrants, Ashkenazi and Sephardic alike, Argentina did indeed prove to be the 'promised land,' a place where they could secure a living for themselves and an education for their children, and which they could try to make their new home. The demographic distribution of the Latin Americans throughout Israel is such that on one hand, their presence is felt everywhere, but on the other hand their geographical distribution has made it difficult for them to assert themselves collectively.
