- About Me
I am a historian of Jewish immigration to Argentina in particular, and to Latin America in general. I study the way in which Jews shaped their lives, becoming part of, and contributing to the growth of, the countries of their choice. I am currently finishing a book on Jewish Argentine youth, and their participation in Zionist movements.
