Mumbai Jews on edge after attacks in India

leave a comment »

That was the title of an article in Times of India, Dec 5. The good thing is, local jews and Muslims dont hate one another.

“The community also had especially tight relations with local Muslims, said Jonathan Solomon, chairman of the Indian Jewish Federation. Brought together by similar dietary laws and other shared cultural values, the two groups historically lived in the same neighborhoods, and two schools run by a Jewish trust now educate predominantly Muslim students, he said.

Many Jews said the attack would not cause a rift among the local communities, emphasizing that neither the Muslim attackers, nor the Jewish victims in the center were from India”
