Explore Jewish Culture and religion in Mumbai


This tour starts with a brief orientation on India's Jewish communities - the history of their arrival in India 2000 years ago, geographical spread, the different sects and their culture. I will provide you with illustrated handouts and notes to deepen your understanding of India's Jews. Over these 2000 years, the Jewish experience has been marked by local acceptance of Jewish people and their customs.
