Baghdadian Jews of Bombay

Their Life and Achievements:

A Personal and Historical Account.
By Rachel Manasseh

This fascinating book, a richly illustrated and detailed account by Rachel Manasseh, is the first major publication devoted exclusively to the life of the Baghdadian or ‘Baghdadi’ Jewish community of Bombay (Mumbai today).

Baghdadian Jews of Bombay
Baghdadian Jews of Bombay

Baghdadian Jews of Bombay is an exciting narrative of the two hundred year sojourn of the Baghdadian Jewish community in the cosmopolitan city of Bombay (today’s Mumbai), India. From their early beginnings, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, they established a lively community embracing brethren arriving from the Middle East and Central Asia.

Their gradual dispersal followed Indian Independence, to English-speaking countries and to the newly established State of Israel. Today, the synagogues with clock towers and steeples, the ‘Queen’s necklace’ at Marine Drive, the Gateway of India, Apollo Bunder, the Prince of Wales Museum, Cuffe Parade, Flora Fountain and Crawford Market are landmarks which still remain – albeit renamed in some cases – along with a small nucleus of the original community.

About the author:

RACHEL MANASSEH was born in Bombay of Baghdadian Jewish parents, Reuben and Georgette Ani, and grew up during the British Raj. Her parents were upstanding members of the community; her mother was particularly involved in charitable causes and in assisting new brides who came from Baghdad to settle in the community in Bombay.

Rachel Manasseh was an inspiring leader in the youth group, Habonim, a religious Jewish organization which was started in Bombay in 1935 by Albert Manasseh, whom she married during World War II. Her husband, Albert Manasseh was recognized both in India and abroad as ‘the pillar of the community.’
