18 February 2014 – Fort Cochin, India

February 18, 2014

A visit to the old Paradesi Synagogue in Fort Cochin, India. Unfortunately no videos or photographs allowed inside. But if you ever find yourself in Fort Cochin, go here! Fascinating murals depicting Jewish migration to Kerela, the building, destruction (by the Portuguese) of the original synagogue, and the rebuilding (by the Dutch) of the building as it stands today, 500 years later.
