Judaism in Kerala

Thekkumbhagam Synagogue, Ernakulam

The Thekkumbhagam Synagogue, built by Malabari Jews in 1950, is a Jewish place of worship located in Ernakulam district of Kerala. Nearly three-and-a-half centuries later, the structure weakened and started deteriorating. As a result, it was demolished in the 1930s and reconstructed later. Its beauty lies primarily in the stained glass windows. Currently, it is under the care of Mr Elias Josephai, better known in the neighbourhood as Babu.
