Abstract

The article describes the latest structural changes that the Mexican Ashkenazi communal leaders have undertaken. It describes the interplay of religious and lay leaders in effecting essential changes within the community. At the same time, the political and philosophical implications of the choices taken by this leadership and the passivity of its constituency are brought to the fore in an attempt to highlight the enormously important consequences that specific voluntary living arrangements carry with themselves.
