Abstract

How is ethnic and national identity negotiated in Brazil? By asking how Jews fit into a broadly constructed ethnic Brazil, this article argues that the field of Jewish Studies will benefit more from cross-group comparison. It further argues that feelings of insecurity among Brazilian Jews stem more from a sense that in Brazil ethnicity should be practiced at home than from actual public attacks on Jewish ethnic life.
