Talk on the Jews of India

25/11/2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

I  originally gave this talk in the summer of 2016 and I know there are some of you who will have attended. It was on a very warm August Friday night in the Peill Room and Stu and I prepared some tasty Indian nosh to go with the proceedings. Although what I say will be based on the talk I gave then, I will add a section about both my mum’s and dad’s families and why they found themselves in India in 1914 and 1920 respectively when my mum and dad were born. I won’t say any more so as to whet your appetite for the talk on the 25th.

However, it would be great if people brought relevant artefacts to the screen. Linda has already promised an Indian Jewish cookbook, which I hope to clap eyes on beforehand so I can prepare myself some veggie Indian nosh for the evening. Helen has artefacts that Chris collected on his numerous trips to India in support of his charity based in the south of the country. Chris from Peterborough mentioned that she had some information about the Kerralan Jews. If you have any artefacts or relevant recipes of a Jewish Indian flavour please have them with you. I look forward to seeing you there.

A Zoom link will be circulated to all members and friends. If you not a member or friend and would like to join this talk, please contact us.
