A record number of Brazilian Jews are flocking to Israel to benefit from the Law of Return.

The news of the number of Brazilian Jews taking advantage of the automatic Israeli citizenship was reported on the Thursday night edition of Jornal Nacional, Brazil’s leading primetime newscast aired by Globo TV.

The three-minute news footage was immediately spread via social media by most Jewish institutions including the Brazilian Israelite Confederation – the country’s umbrella Jewish organization, and most of its affiliates, as well as the Jewish Agency.
