July 15, 2010 at 6:30:00 PM

The article in the Jerusalem Post by Shalva Weil talks about the Paravur Synagogue restoration. The stunning Parur synagogue is being rebuilt at a breakneck rate, highlighting the unique relationships Jews have with other religions in south India. The synagogue serves as a reminder of Kerala's Jewish past. Researchers' interest in Kerala has intensified as a result of the discovery of the ancient port of Muziris, which is just one kilometre from the Parur Synagogue. Researchers are speculating that there may be a link between the commercial port and the early Jewish presence in the region.
