Studies of Indian Jewish Identity

Reprint of 1995 edition. The 7 contributions in this volume analyse the historical, social and religious identity in three distinct communities of Indian Jews: the Cochin Jews, the Bene Israel and the “Baghdadi” Jews. The authors address historical development, social interaction with Gentile neighbors, modernization and the influence of Zionism and the role of religion as a system of rituals and norms defining and celebrating the very identities of Indian Jews.
