Jewish Traces in Unexpected Places: An American Jewish Comedian Visits the Jews of India


Entwine is an initiative of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, commonly known as ''the Joint."  It's a movement for young Jewish leaders and offers them service experiences in Jewish communities around the world.

The JDC is the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization. It works in more than 70 countries and in Israel to alleviate hunger and hardship, rescue Jews in danger, create lasting connections to Jewish life, and provide immediate relief and long-term development support for victims of natural and man-made disasters.

Entwine sent American comedian Noah Gardenswartz to India to meet the local Jewish community. They asked him to film everything. In today's video, we follow Noah to Mumbai and Cochin and share his experiences.

Enjoy and Shabbat shalom!
