Losing Our Way Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day I can hear her breathing. --------------------------------------------------------- Arundhati Roy (Indian author, advocate, activist)

S INDIA: Shantivanam Ashram; Trichy; Kumily; Amritapuri Ashram; Kollam; Varkala; Kottayam; Cochin

Not far from Fort Cochin is a neighborhood named Jew Town. It once was home to a thriving community of Jews who escaped persecution in Europe and the Middle East. This Hebrew plaque marks the entrance to the Jewish cemetery. Also in Jew Town stands the oldest synagogue in the entire British Commonwealth -- but unfortunately they did not allow us to take photos.
