Contents Introduction: undocumented belonging -- Unsettling setting: a Jewish state dependent on non-Jewish labor -- Destiny and destination: Latinos deciding to leave for Israel -- Shifting strategies: from the accumulation of money toward the accumulation of belonging -- Divisive dynamics: the absence of political community and the differentiations of the recreational scene -- The religious forms of undocumented lives: Latino Evangelical churches -- Israeli resolution, Latino disillusion: from massive deportation to symbolic legalization -- Conclusion: a new assimilation?
Note Examines Israel's decision to legalize the status of some undocumented non-Jewish Latino migrant families on the basis of their children's cultural assimilation and identification with the State, and argues that this decision signifies a recognition of the importance of practical belonging for understanding citizenship and national identity
