Travel Guide to the Jewish Caribbean and Latin America by Ben G. Frank
Book DescriptionThis guide introduces readers to Jewish neighbourhoods, historical sites, kosher restaurants, synagogues, and ancient monuments throughout South America, Central America, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Frank brings to life the vibrant Jewish communities and rich histories in these areas, perhaps surprising those readers unfamiliar with Jewish influences to the south of the United States. This book covers it all, from Brazil and its decisive impact on the origins of American Jewry to Puerto Rico, the largest Jewish community in the Caribbean; from Mexico and the story of how its Jewish population predates that of the US to Argentina and the Jewish cowboys of the pampa. This is the perfect companion for those seeking their roots, for those searching for places where relatives and friends lived, or for those simply looking to enrich their travels to this beautiful region.
