Fort Kochi, KeralaJune 9, 2015 in India
Jain Temple & Oldest Synagogue in British Commonwealth (1583). For my Jewish friends back home: locals would ask if I had yet visited the area known as "Old Jew Town" in Fort Kochi and seen some of the few Jewish individuals (60-70 total in the state of Kerala) that remain in a once highly Jewish district. It is as if that was likely to be my only chance to see a Jewish person. Obviously, they had never heard of Chesterfield, Missouri.
