A film produced by the Israeli Film Service which follows the history of the Jewish community of Cochin in India, since its days in Cochin under the rule of the Raja and later the Portuguese occupation, until the immigration of most members of the community to Israel in the 1950’s. The film includes footage from a visit to Cochin and presents the Jewish Quarter known as “Jew Town”, the ancient cemetery and the well-preserved and ancient synagogues. Members of the community in Israel from the settlements Nevatim and Mesilat Zion are interviewed in the film and share with us the integration experiences of their parents’ generation in the 1950s, and invite us to learn about the community life in Israel as expressed in religious ceremonies such as a wedding ceremony, a Passover ceremony, and prayers in the new synagogue in Nevatim.
