L’Chaim – A Taste of Jewish Music from – India!
during the Hebrew month of Tishri, during the festival of Sukkoth, attendees will “travel” to India together with Rahel Musleah.
Through the vivid prism of her family’s story, Rahel Musleah introduces audiences to the distinctive heritage of the Jews of India and Iraq. The seventh generation of a Calcutta family, she traces her roots to seventeenth‑century Baghdad. Through song and story, she offers a rare and intimate view of a rich culture little-known to most. Rahel is an award-winning journalist, author, singer, speaker, and educator. She also leads Jewish heritage tours of India informed by her distinctive “insider’s” perspective. She lives in Roslyn Heights, NY, and is passing down the legacy of the Baghdadi-Indian Jewish community to her two children, Shira and Shoshana.
