By 2010, the number was reduced to 390,000, with the major destinations of emigrants being the US and Israel. In addition, Latin American Jews also moved to Canada and Spain (Bokser Liwerant 2015). Drawing on data from DellaPergola (2011) and Sheskin and Dashefsky (2011), Bokser Liwerant (2015) estimates between 100,000 and 150,000 Latin American Jews in the US. Similarities and Differences among Cuban and Latin American Jewish Immigrants Speaking the same language, hailing from a common region, and having arrived in the US relatively recently, Cuban and Latin American Jews have much in common.

According to Bettinger-Lopez (2000), a number of Cuban Jews did visit Miami each summer during the 1940s and 1950s, but this was so long ago that its current impact on the community is likely minimal. Due to the two groups’ differing financial status upon arrival and the evolution of social norms with regard to women’s involvement in the labor market associated with the time and place of their departure, patterns of gender and family adaptation contrast. Cuban Jewish women, who had not worked in Cuba, often found employment in the ethnic economy shortly after arrival to assist their families to reestablish middle class standing (Fernandez-Kelly and Garcia 1990).

In contrast, financial assets from the country of origin allowed Latin American women to be less concerned with income generation. Like recently arrived Israeli women in the US who have children, they often concentrate on assisting familial and community adaptation. Also like Israeli women, Latin American women found jobs as teachers in Jewish schools. Having access to jobs in the US provided not only income and a social orientation, but the additional benefit of helping their families establish legal resident status in the US, something that for Cuban, Russian, and Iranian Jewish immigrants was often unnecessary due to their refugee or asylee status (Bejarano 2014; Gold 2014).
