List of Chilean Jews

Chilean Jews are Chileans residing in the Republic of Chile who are of either Jewish ancestry or observe the Jewish faith.

In the 2012 Chilean census, 16,294 Chilean residents listed their religion as Judaism, an increase of 8.8% since 2002.[1][2] The actual Jewish community in Chile is estimated to be slightly larger.[3][4] Chilean Jews are found across the country, although the majority live in the cities of Santiago and Valparaíso, and are predominantly found in higher-paying professions and all walks of public life.[5] The Chilean Jewish population decreased in the political turmoil of the 1970s and 1980s, but their identity as Jews in Chile remains. Most Chilean Jews are Ashkenazim. Here is a list of some prominent Chilean Jews.
