Times of Israel,Wednesday, October 22, 2014
It was time for morning prayers at the Chabad Jewish center in Pokhara But it was not a peaceful morning. Far from it. At 11 a.m., a group of female Israeli backpackers marched into the hotel lobby, bags around their backs and chests, poles in their hands. They kept it together, for a few last moments. But as soon as they spotted their friends, the dams holding back their fear and tension gave way and they immediately collapsed in tears on the floor of the Nepali guest house...

...Pinson wants to provide a mooring for young Detroit Jews between the time they leave college and get married.

A Bittersweet Rebirth for India’s Jews
Financial Times,Monday, October 20, 2014
Nariman House, a Jewish cultural centre in southern Mumbai, looks more than a little like a fortress. Heavy gates separate its entrance from the teeming, narrow street outside, while thick, bombproof doors guard the interior courtyard. Such precautions seem grimly appropriate, given the heritage of this spindly six-storey building, which reopened recently having been a victim of the 2008 terror attacks on India’s financial capital – a city whose emergence as a commercial centre, in turn, owes a debt to its small but prominent Jewish population...
