Kosher Feijoada and Other Paradoxes of Jewish Life in São Paulo

This chapter explores the ways in which the nation constructs itself in relation to Jews, and how Jews actively participate in this historical revision. The recognition of the small population is mutually strategic as well as corrective: for Brazilian society, it is one example of a larger project to recast contemporary Brazil as a modern, multicultural nation. For Brazilian Jews, this rewriting of Brazilian history and the re-inscription of the landscape to reflect their presence serve to powerfully transmit the memory of their participation—acts that are infused with the hope of securing a place in the nation and confirming a sense of belonging.
