Jews of Calcutta

Lecture by Mavis Hyman.

Ever since David Shalom Cohen, an indigo trader, was invited to ride with the Raja on his elephant, Iraqi-Jewish families such as Elias or Ezra became prominent in Calcutta. They built hospitals and schools and organized women’s leagues. The colourful story of the Jews of Calcutta will also reveal the tolerant nature of the host community.

Proceeds to a charity in the name of Miriam Hyman.
