One couldn't help but wonder why the Jewish community
of Calcutta drastically dwindled to only 25 as mentioned
in a popular Newspaper !
There was a time when their presence and contribution
was felt in various fields. Who could forget the Jewish
confectionery Nahoum's in New Market which has stolen
our hearts from as early as 1916.
The Star Of David-synagogue was built in 1884 by E.David
Ezra which still stands. It is indeed the finest synagogue in
the world-as Ambassador Alon Ushpiz mentions.
We Calcuttans too are proud that it is still here and well
