About
The Jewish community in India is comprised of 03 distinct groups: Bene Israel, The Malabar Jewish community and the Iraqi Jews. Their history dates back to over 2000 years ago where there is evidence listed on the cemeteries in Hebrew. Today the community has shrunk considerably; however, there is a large community still active to share the history with us. This program combines both Jewish histories (as we go the beaten track to explore this remarkable culture) with the traditional Indian temples and palaces through the land of the Maharajas.
