Judaism in Kerala

Inside a Synagogue There are two opinions about the arrival of Jews in Kerala. One is that, due to persecution inflicted on them by the Romans, the Jews fled their country and some of them reached Kerala, before the arrival of St. Thomas. Another notion is that they reached Kerala in 68 A.D.Today, a very small population of Jews live in Kerala. There is a Jewish Town in Kochi. There is also an ancient Synagogue. Built in 1568, this Synagogue is the oldest in India.
