Re: ‘Israel should encourage Brazilian Jews to migrate’

A new study suggests that Israeli officials engaged in encouraging Jews to migrate to the occupation state should focus on Jewish communities in Brazil, Haaretz reported on Sunday.

The study was prepared by researchers at the Israel Institute of Technology based in Haifa. It has not yet been published.

There are 90,000 Jews in Brazil. The study says that Israel should be reaching out to them, and notes that most are aged under 34 and are highly educated, including professionals, high-tech experts, physicians, and other professions wanted in Israel.

The economic situation in Brazil is difficult and there is a high crime rate of crime, say the researchers. As a result, the Jewish community is wondering about its future, especially after an increase in anti-Semitism. Although the study does not mention Covid-19, it is also a possible incentive for migration.

The Jews who were interviewed by the research team said that the obstacles facing their migration are the language, lack of information about the services offered to migrants in Israel, and the difficulties they could face regarding vocational training. This, the study concludes, could lead to Brazilian Jews looking to migrate elsewhere, rather than Israel.
