A Journey to Jerusalem of the east

The oldest Indian Jewish community is in Cochin, a group of people once known as the "Malabar Jews". But actually the first settlement of the Cochini Jews wasn't in Cochin but a little north from Cochin in the town of Kodungallur, an ancient sea port formerly called Cranganore by Portuguese, Muziris by Romans & Greeks and Shingly by Jews. The community, which began in the 4th century, moved to Cochin in the 14th century, and built new synagogues there. We will explore these synagogues and more on this tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jewish Heritage Tour: Lijo is a 5 plus. Started late due to unforeseen circumstances however Lijo made sure we saw everything and then some. He is so knowledgeable, so pleasant, we felt very lucky to have him as our guide. We asked many questions, he knew the answers. He seems to have a great way of relating to his clients, understands timing and needs and desires. Highly recommend him
