Aliyah an overview: the Jewish State of Israel Part III of IV - Latin American Jews

Latin America

Since 1999 an exodus of Jewish people out of Latin America has been taking place. The 1999-2002 Argentine political and economic crises affected the Jewish community of about 200,000 Jews. About 4,4000 of them decided to make Aliyah, and since 2000 more than 10,000 Argentine Jews moved to Israel.

During this same period half of the Uruguayan Jewish community of an estimated 40,000 Jewish people left mainly to Israel.
