India has one of the only Jewish diaspora communities and has been a warm and hospitable place for Jews throughout time. When we speak of the Jews of India we are speaking of multiple historic communities – each with its own origin story, unique customs and characteristics. This resource focuses on the three largest groups: the Bene Israel, the Cochini Jews and the Baghdadi Jews. It includes a PowerPoint presentation on the Indian Jewish community and an accompanying script for teachers.
