RESCHEDULED POST-IRMA: 'Jews of India' program to kick off synagogue speakers series

India is known for its antiquity and modern high-tech. Spirituality and Bollywood swagger. Bustling cities and pristine nature. A cultural kaleidoscope that's the world's largest democracy.

But what’s typically not known is India’s long history as one of the most hospitable homes in the Jewish diaspora.

Discussing this fascinating chapter of Jewish history will be Florida International University Distinguished Professor, Emeritus, Dr. Nathan Katz, a leading authority and award-winning author on Indian Jewish life, and his wife, Ellen Goldberg, an author, photojournalist and long-time Jewish communal professional. The couple's presentation Sept. 24 (rescheduled from Sept. 10, due to Hurricane Irma) will kick off Temple Beth Am’s Sunday Salon season at 10 a.m. on the temple campus, 5950 N. Kendall Drive, Pinecrest.

Katz and Goldberg have lived and traveled for several years in South Asia, including a year as Fulbright researchers in Kochi (formerly Cochin), South India, where they coauthored two books on the Jewish community there. Over the last two years, they’ve traversed the country leading Jewish-India tours, appropriately called “India My 2nd Home (http://IndiaMy2ndHome.com/)," which included a number of South Florida participants. Another tour is planned for Jan. 31-Feb. 13, 2018.

"Here in America, where Jews are free and are successful, we worry about preserving our heritage," Katz noted. "In India, where Jewish communities were intact for 1,000 years and more, small communities flourished in both Jewish and Indian terms. We want to explore how they managed to do that and see what we can learn from them."

Katz said they will be showing photos of Indian people and telling stories of people they know there.

"There's great history and there's great architecture, but the most remarkable things about India are the special people who live there, and that's what we want to present to people."

The program is open to the community and free of charge. To RSVP or for more information contact Etta Gold, 786.264.6543 or egold@tbam.org.
