Re: Ahmedabad's Bene Israeli community and the larger question of Indian Jewish identity

From another Asher: I've been several times to the Ahmedabad synagogue and to just about every other synagogue in India. I think there are a couple of explanations to the dwindling community, not only of Bene Israel Jews in India but of other Jewish communities in India as well. One is the absence of persecution. That is, responding to persecution creates community. Another is Israel. I worry that it has disrupted communities in the Diaspora while at the same time offering safe haven to persecuted Jewish minorities.
