Jews of India  - Community Information

 

 

The central communal organisation of Jews in India is the Council of Indian Jewry,

 which wasestablished in 1978 in Bombay. It replaced the Central Jewish Board, f

founded
during World War II. The Council consists of representatives from the 

various
synagogues and Jewish organisations. There are a variety of other 

organisations,including the Zionist Association, B'nai B'rith, a Jewish Club in 

Bombay, Bikur
Cholim and two women's associations.

 

There are three Jewish schools in Bombay, but over the years the percentage of

Jews in their student bodies has dwindled. In the ORT school, for example, less

than half the students are Jewish. There are also two small Jewish schools in

Calcutta.
