Living twenty six years free of any discrimination or anti-Semitism, we considered our years in India any Jewish person would have relished.
But what seemed as an exodus unparalled in Indian Jewish history was an amazing feat, because at the height of prosperity, Jews were leaving India by air and sea, without chariots chasing them.

May Hashem bless and keep the Jewish heart beating for the land of Israel.
"Plant the seeds of righteousness; reap the benefits
with G-d's boundless kindness."
