With Global India, curated in collaboration with Barbara Johnson (Ithaca College), The Magnes unveiled its extensive holdings documenting the history of the Jewish community in Kerala, South India, collected in the 1960s and 70s. The exhibition centered on the community’s deep connections with India’s society and cultures and with the global Jewish Diaspora, across the subcontinent, the Middle East, and Europe. Over one hundred individual items, many of which had never been cataloged (or displayed) before were presented.



Support for this exhibition and related programs has been provided by the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
