About this Item

New Delhi, Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 1999. Cloth, 8vo, 203 pages. Includes tables & plates. 23cm. The Seven contributions in this volume analyze the historical, social and religious identity in three distinct communities of Indian Jews: the Cochin Jews, the Bene Israel and the "Baghdadi" Jews. This book is an attempt at 'self definition'. It raises basic questions like-who the Jews of India are, are they Jewish or Indian? It then proceeds to answer them by delving deep into cultural mechanisms by which India's Jews came to define themselves and how they were defined by others. In doing this it explores the conditions by which a group's identity is established and maintained, how it responds to changing conditions and how it anticipates and structures a future.
