Passport J: A Virtual Tour of Jewish India

Wednesday, May 5 | 7:00 PM| $10

Namaste and Shalom! Join Rahel Musleah for an exciting (virtual) journey through Jewish India. India’s Jewish heritage is a rich cultural and historical saga that stretches from biblical times until today.  Explore each of India’s Jewish communities as we visit sites and synagogues in Bombay, Calcutta and Cochin.

RAHEL MUSLEAH is a New York-based award-winning journalist, author, singer, speaker and educator. Rahel is a graduate of Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary of America, and was born in Calcutta, India, the seventh generation of a Calcutta Jewish family that traces its roots to 17th-century Baghdad. Through her multimedia song, story and slide program of Jewish Calcutta through Music and Memory, she shares her rare and intimate knowledge of this ancient community’s history, customs and melodies with audiences at synagogues, schools, libraries, women’s groups and cultural events. She is looking forward to travel opening up so she can resume taking visitors on Jewish heritage tours of India. In the meantime, she is bringing India to you!
