From Baghdad to Calcutta

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.

Rahel is an award-winning journalist with hundreds of published articles to her credit as well as the author of several critically acclaimed books. She enriches the vibrant mosaic of Jewish diversity with her distinctive lyrical and literary voice.
