Jewish Life in Rio de Janeiro, the “Marvelous City”
During the mid-1800s, Jews came to Rio from Morocco and organized a community alongside their Ashkenazi neighbors. The vast majority of Rio’s Jewish population lives in the central neighborhoods of Leblon, Botafogo, Ipanema, and Copacabana. Join the Orange County Community Scholar Program for a conversation between Rabbi Elie Spitz and Rabbi Nilton Bonderr about the joys and challenges of living a Jewish life in Rio.
