Cochin Jews circa 1900

India has a legacy of three distinct ancient Jewish groups: the Bene Israel, the Cochin Jews, and the White Jews from Europe. Each group practiced important elements of Judaism and had active synagogues. More recent Jewish immigration to India includes the Baghdadi Jews, Bnei Menashe, and Bene Ephraim. There are believed to be 5,000 Jews living in India today, 4,500 of whom reside in Bombay.

7 pm Saturday, at the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia, Boulder.  Admission $8 for JCC members, $10 for guests.

About Staff

Staff
They call me "NewsHound Too," because I'm sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. My buddies know me as "Rocky." I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
