Description

Being Jewish in Brazil - the world's largest Catholic country - is fraught with paradoxes, and living in Sao Paulo only amplifies these vivid contradictions. The metropolis is home to Jews from over 60 countries of origin, and to the Hebraica, the world's largest Jewish athletic and social club. Jewish identity is rooted in layered experiences of historical and contemporary dispersal and border crossings. Brazil is famously tolerant of difference but less understanding of longings for elsewhere. Celebrating both Carnival and the High Holidays is but one example of how Jews in Sao Paulo hold themselves together as a community in the face of the forces of assimilation. Misha Klein's fascinating ethnography reveals the complex intertwining of Jewish and Brazilian life and identity.
