Best of the Week

With this week (And month. Summer is almost over people. Get your winter coats out) coming to a close, let’s take a look at some things you might have missed here at MJL.

We have three new articles about the history of three different Jewish communities in India. Really interesting and informative. It’s a part of Jewish history that a lot of people don’t know about.

To top things off, here is the history of Jewish Indian cuisine.

Jewish weddings take place under a chuppah. But do you know anything about the structure? Read all about it here.

Finally, Matt Plen takes a look at how the Six Day War and the Yom Kippur War have shaped Israel’s history through today.

Have a good weekend!
