An award-winning journalist, author, singer, speaker, educator, and leader of Jewish heritage tours of India, Rahel Musleah was born in Calcutta, India, the seventh generation of a Calcutta Jewish family that traces its roots to 17th century Baghdad. Through her multi-media song, story, and slide programs, she shares her rare and intimate knowledge of this ancient community’s history, customs, and melodies with audiences at synagogues, schools, libraries, women’s groups, and cultural events.

Funding has been made possible in part by an operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, through grant funds administered by the Monmouth County Historical Commission.
