Jewish Synagogue Cochin

    In Fort Cochin, there is also the famous Jewish Synagogue built in 1568, and preserved till today. Destroyed in a shelling during the Portugues raid in 1662, it was rebuilt two years later by the Dutch. Known for mid 18th century hand painted, willow patterned floor tiles from Canton in China, a clock tower, inscriptions on stone slabs, great scrolls of the Old Testament, ancient scripts on copper plates etc. The population of the Jews has dropped drastically with the establishing of the Jewish State of Israel, many Jewish settlers in Cochin and other parts of Kerala left the country for Israel. There are only about 17 Jews left, and that the number of adult males does not come up to the required number for a Priest, the Community is without one. The Jewish Synagogue will be probably be taken over by a Trust, and because of it's historical importance to the history of Cochin ( Kochi ), will be preserved. There were supposedly Jews also in Quilon, but apparently they are no longer there.

Below are some of the photographs taken at different times by my family members except the one which is a distinctive yellow in colour and shows the decoration of the Tabernacle for Simcha Torah which is by Richard Todd. The whole area was spruced up because of the visit of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II in 1997.
