Resilience and Resettlement: Venezuelan Jews

Hosted By: Qesher

The 20th century saw thousands of Jews from North Africa and Eastern Europe find refuge and opportunities in Venezuela, a land that became exceptionally welcoming to them. Since 1999, when Hugo Chávez took office, the emigration of Venezuelan Jews accelerated exponentially. This talk aims to shed light on the complex journey of the shrinking Jewish community in Venezuela. By understanding their story, you can gain deeper insights into the challenges faced by the Jews in Venezuela in a socio-political upheaval. Explore the broader themes of identity, migration, and cultural preservation, highlighting their struggles, resilience, and hopes for the future.

Host

Qesher

There are Jewish communities all around the globe with their own unique history, culture, places, and most of all, people and stories. All of them different, but sharing so much. The aim of Qesher is to connect these different Jewish traditions, not just to know of each other, but to learn about each other. We believe that there is great value in creating a deeper understanding within the Jewish world and exploring Jewish experiences and identities in all their diversity.
