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.

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
