This book is a simple account of the Jews in India - the story of their arrival in the country, their religious beliefs and customs, and their integration with and contribution to the Indian way of life. While addressed essentially to young people, the book will also serve to introduce adult readers to this minutest of Indian 'minorities' (Many do not even know of its existence). It will also provide young Indian Jews an account of their place in the vast mosaic of Indian society and their significance as an Indian community, despite their miniscule numbers.
