Chapter Summary

The Jewish People's singularity is developing today amid a world of diversified, new and expanded diasporas. Similarly, and possibly even more, Jews are experiencing changing models of interactions through continuous bonds of cohesion and solidarity. Diaspora and transnationalism may be seen as key concepts for approaching the Jewish Contemporary condition and the Latin American Jewish profile, both past and present. This binomial widens the research scope pointing to crossing and transcending borders, the creation of new social formations, and the changing relations between communities and homeland(s). Approached in their mutual relation and overlapping nature, diaspora and transnationalism are largely the focus of the current debate in the social sciences. We maintain that both concepts allow us to analyze differentially the common grounds and specificities of the Jewish case, as well as other equally relevant binomials of today's Jewish life concerning complex patterns of boundary maintenance in national/transnational communal and social spaces.

Keywords: boundary maintenance; Jewish diaspora; Jewish life; social formations; transnationalism
