1. Chapter 1 (the Introduction) of 5 of a film on the Jews of Kerala.

    I would love to share with the world the wonderful experience Jews have had in India. Unlike virtually every other place in world where Jews have lived, the Jews of India have never experienced persecution, discrimination, and massacres from Indians for being Jewish. Furthermore, it is interesting to note that, despite the community being relatively microscopic in size compared to other minorities in India, it's socio-economic contribution has been very high.

    I'm trying to craft every chapter to cover the history of the Cochin Jews as well as incorporate wonderful stories told to me through 13 interviews I've shot in the last 6 months in 6 cities across 2 countries.

    I hope the audience enjoys watching this film as much as I have making it!

Jews of Cochin

The community is considered to be the oldest settlement of Jews anywhere in the world.

"In India, we never had to fight for our rights but in Israel we did, and this was something new for us."
