Jews formed communities and were trading in India from the time of King Solomon. We will be looking primarily at three of those communities, the Jews of Cochin, the Jews of the Kolkan coast, and the Baghdadi Jews who prospered under the British Raj. Why are virtually none left there today?

Cosponsored with the American Sephardi Federation.
