The main focus was on the Club Atletico Atlanta, it is considered a Jewish neighborhood. Belonging to this club was a way for Jewish immigrants to fit in and become Argentines. This club allowed for a sense of identity for the members of the community. There was a large feeling of needing to re-create something but also to show what they did. The article highlights that Jewish-Argentines struggled to find a happy medium between ethical values and tradition. Sports acted as a way to bridge that gap for them. They were able to create a culture that they fit into. They are credited with helping to shape the Argentine culture. Many younger and newer Jewish immigrants did not have a strong education, so sports were a way for them to fit into Argentian culture. Jewish people in Argentina did not become stars like they did in other countries. The stadium was a very recognizable feature. It allowed fans to share common feelings and create memories together. While the fan base was not huge it is still notable. in 1934 the AFA tried to force a merger between two teams, it was short lived. in the 1980s when new sporting clubs where created many people chose to follow different sports. The club had a lot of Jewish officers which is why it was labeled as a Jewish club. Though there was also a large issue with antisemitism and gender-based attacks.
Overall, my biggest takeaway was that soccer was a large part of identity for Jewish-Argentines. It was a way for them to fit in but also contribute to the culture. While they faced many struggles with antisemitism they pursued and made somewhat of a name for themselves. Though their support for soccer did not last long it was important to their culture.
