Example text

Despite LAMP’s efforts, some Argentinean clients were unsuccessful and compelled to return to their homeland or to make aliyah (Bejarano 2014, p. 175; Yudewitz 2003, p. 136). 1 Patterns of Adaptation Among Contemporary Jewish Immigrants to the US 33 Its difficulties notwithstanding, Bejarano (2014, p. 175) contends that the creation of LAMP marks the changing attitude of the Jewish establishment in Miami toward Jews from Latin America. Following this model, established congregations have worked to incorporate newcomers by hiring Spanish-speaking rabbis and staff.

Suggesting their diverse identities, 38 % of Hispanic Jewish adults in Miami also identify as Sephardic Jews and 9 % of Hispanic Jews also consider themselves to be Israelis, while 14 % of Israeli Jews in Miami consider themselves to be Hispanic Jews (Sheskin 2015, pp. 4-20–4-21). Green (2012, p. 130) notes that Sephardic French Jews have also moved to Miami in recent years, sometimes via Montreal, and that some percentage consider themselves to be Hispanic Jews. Reflecting on-going migration, the size and ranking of Latin American Jewish nationalities in Miami has changed over the past decade.

In the US, however, Israelis become a minority group and lose communal networks based upon family, friendship, and neighborhood, which provided a social life and assistance in raising children. The presence of young or school-age children in Israeli immigrant families often heightens their ambivalence about being in the US. Role reversals sometime occur between parents and children, with the younger generation gaining power versus the older. This is because children generally become Americanized and learn English much faster than their parents.
