Synagogues in India

There are currently thirty-three synagogues in India, although many no longer function as such and today vary in their levels of preservation. These buildings dating from the mid-sixteenth through the mid-20th century once served the country’s three distinct Jewish groups – the ancient Cochin Jews and Bene Israel communities as well as the more recent Baghdadi Jews.
