Abstract:

Dr. Steven Windmueller reviews demographic data concerning the increasing political and social importance of America's large and growing Latino population. He identifies shared values which are key to improving Jewish-Latino relations, including an emphasis on family and education, and elements of agreement and sympathy on immigration issues. An important goal for the Jewish community, the author contends, is to develop strategies to introduce the next generation of Latino officials to Jewish leaders and to Israel, and to nurture connections with young Latinos who are emerging as leaders in their communities.
