It is pretty common practice to allow for 'Brasil' to work for 'Brazil.'

In terms of sheer numbers, it's pretty crazy that the 2 countries with over 1 billion people don't even have 17,000 Jewish people living there.

Why don't Jews ever migrate to China or some other Asian country? I feel like they would fit in well there.

Seems like that would be smart. These places don't have the centuries old Christian/Islamic tradition of hating Jews. Not including countries in the near East and Middle East that have historic Jewish populations (Turkey, Azerbaijan, Iran, Uzbekistan) the Asian countries with the most Jews are China with 8,000 and India with 7,000 including people who self-report as part-Jewish. 5,000 of China's Jews live in Hong Kong so they are fairly concentrated there. Japan has 1400. Numbers in other far East countries are negligible: about the size of a large tour group.

Still 117.000 left in Germány? That is rather interesting...
