What People are Saying About This

Ilan Stavans
"Chock-full of invaluable ties. In size, the Jews of Latin America are the fifth largest concentration worldwide but it is one of the least known. Ben Frank is our Virgil: he opens new vistas and builds new bridges."
professor of Latin American and Latino culture, Amherst College
New York Jewish Week
"This is an indispensable work."
Marcelo Bronstein
"This book is much more than a travel guide, it opens the door to the richness of treasures of Jewish gems hidden in the streets of Latin America. It is a must."
Rabbi, Congregation B'nai Jeshurun, New York
Gabriel Levenson
"Ben Frank completely describes the Jewish presence and history south of the Rio Grande from Mexico, through Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. Prodigious!"
travel editor, New York Jewish Week
Jewish World
"This volume and his other travel guides are perfect for the arm-chair traveler."
Daphne Raz
"An excellent resource with information about the Jewish communities in the Caribbean and Latin America, even the smallest and the most remote. This guide is not only for those who venture far; it is also fascinating reading for the armchair traveler."
