The Baghdadi Jews in India – Opium, Synagogues and Politics

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

Baghdadi Jews in India managed to maintain their communities by negotiating multiple identities in a stratified and complex society. The communities were incredibly diverse and managed to successfully adapt to new situations during the British Raj, while retaining particular traditions and modifying and incorporating others. They experienced extraordinary changes from the late 18th century until dispersion to different Indian diasporas in Israel and English-speaking countries throughout the world after India gained independence in 1947. Join an exploration of their stories spanning continents and centuries with Prof. Shalva Weil, Senior Researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Seymour Fox School of Education.

This event will take place at 1:00 pm EST/8:00 pm Israel.
