Jews, in India?
by Noah Gardenswartz
That was my response when the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) asked me in 2013 to make a documentary about the Jewish community in India.
Having grown up in a traditional Jewish household, I was familiar with the idea of Jewish community.
Having the Internet and a few friends of Indian descent, I became as familiar with Indian culture as I could without experiencing it firsthand.
