The concluding chapter discusses how this exploration of Jewish Brazilian experience is important for understanding both Jewish ethnicity and Brazilian national identity, and the relationship between national and ethnic identity. An examination of Jewish Brazilian identity further illuminates the complex ways that Brazilianness is a nexus of race, class, and culture. While Jews in São Paulo construct their communities and identities in ways that are consistent with local culture, their condition as transnationals limits the extent to which they can be fully national while maintaining ethnic distinction. Each aspect of their identity informs the other: as Jews and as Brazilians they have a dual identity that cannot be separated.

Keywords:   Jewish ethnicity, Brazilian identity, Cosmopolitanism, Belonging, Transnationalism
