Indian Stamp Honors
the Cochin Synagogue

COCHIN, South India (JTA)—
The Indian government has issued
a postage stamp and first day
Cover marking the 400th annivers-
ary of the founding of the Cochin
synagogue in the Indian state of
Kerala.
The Jewish community of Co-
(thin, which dates its origin 2,000
years ago, has largely emigrated
to Israel. Only several hundred
Jews remain.
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency
reported last month that the com-
munity- leaders asked the Indian
government for permission to
move the Tora scrolls and ritual
items from the old synogogue to
Israel so that the Cochin Jews can
remain a cohesive community in
their new home.

you plan and design your office. Letting them select the right
desks, tables, chairs, carpeting, draperies, accessories and
