An interesting book on the city of Bombay (now Mumbai) and its Jewish history. It explores the social history of the city after it evolved from a fragment of seven islands into the single landmass that it is today. The book offers a deep insight into one of the world’s most fascinating Jewish communities. India’s Jews consist of three communities, each with its own distinctive lifestyle and religious, cultural, and communal characteristics.

They are the Cochin Jews (Malabar Jews), Bene-Isreal Jews (sons of Isreal Jews), and the Baghdadi Jews. This book is mainly on the Baghdadi Jews of Mumbai.
