  • The Jewish community in Mumbai comprises mainly of about 4,000 Bene Israel Jews who trace their origins in Mumbai to a shipwreck off the Maharashtra coast around 175 BC and a few hundred Baghdadi Jews from Iraq. The first Baghdadi Jew, Joseph Semah, moved to Bombay from Surat in 1730 and settled there as the city had a prominent opportunity. Later, the members of the Bene Israel community also moved from the Konkan villages in 1746 as a part of the Divekar family. This experience, led by a local historian, will showcase their history and heritage. The highlights of the experience include the Kenesethe Eliyahoo Synagogue, Magen David Synagogue, and the Shaar –ha- Rahamim Synagogue.
