We Discover Jewish Communities Around the World - The Jews of Calcutta
Jewish Calcutta though Music and Memory
Through the vivid prism of her family's story and a heritage of lyrical songs, Rahel Musleah introduces audiences to the rich culture of the Jews of India and Iraq. Her fascinating personal journey mirrors the story of Calcutta's Jews with humor, poignancy and song. This universal story of community and immigration, loss and continuity, is filtered through her particular lens.
About Rahel Musleah:
Rahel is an award-winning journalist, author, singer, storyteller and educator. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, Hadassah magazine, and numerous other publications. Her CD of Shabbat and holiday melodies is called Hodu: Jewish Rhythms from Baghdad to India; it includes many of the songs she will share with us. She is a pioneer in the Sephardi/Mizrahi community as a woman prayer leader.
Rahel leads Jewish heritage tours to India twice a year, and would love for you to join her when we are back on the road! Her website is: https://www.explorejewishindia.com
