As excitement builds for the Menorah Bialywood event in December, get in the mood this Saturday night when the Menorah Film Series presents “Shalom Bombay.” Carlos Zarur, who led the discussion at Night at the Casbah, returns to introduce the film and lead discussion.
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.
