The Washington Post has a great story by Juan Forero on Jewish gauchos. No, really!
Forero says: Today, the story of their arrival in Argentina’s outback is all but a footnote in the history of the Jewish diaspora. But in the 1890s, as whole towns of Eastern European and Russian Jews began packing, the offers of a new life in the New World seemed like providence.
