The Ashkenazi Jews of Mexico
Hosted By: YIVO
The Ashkenazi Jews of Mexico are a relatively small community through which one can observe the Jewish ideological battles of the 20th and 21st centuries. This talk will feature a description of the birth of the Jewish Ashkenazi community in Mexico in the 20th century; a discussion of the community’s structural development and expansion; and an exploration of the ideological variety, richness, and effervescence of its communal life. The lecture will include a particular focus on Jewish-educational efforts within the community as well as the Yiddish language as a marker of identity and communal affiliation.
Taking place on Zoom. Delivered in Yiddish.
