Israel’s Undocumented Latinos
LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE SHOW

Many European countries sought Latin American workers. And thousands of immigrants also ended up in the state of Israel.

Independent Producer Reese Erlich found that many of these non-Jewish young people now share a strong Israeli identity, with little memory of a Latin American homeland.
