Contents: Introduction. 1. Indian jewry in general. 2. The cochin jews. 3. The Bene Israel. 4. Mughal jews. 5. The Baghdadi and sephardi jews. 6. Ashkenazim in India. 7. Tribal jews. The modern Western world was introduced to Indian Jews in 1665 when Menasseh ben Israel of Amsterdam petitioned Oliver Cromwell's government to permit Jews to return to England from where they had been expelled in 1290, citing the benevolent Maharajas of Cochin as examples of pragmatic and tolerant leadership to be emulated in England. Over the next 350 years, books, magazine and newspaper articles, travel diaries, and a variety of government and commercial documents have explored Indian Jewish experience, often sensationally.
