While many Jewish communities are complex, it seems that Indian Jewry gets the prize. Made up of several different groups, the session will concentrate on the 3 that immigrated to Israel, the Baghdadis, Bnei Israel and Bnei Menashe. India was tolerant towards the tiny Jewish communities, but tensions existed between the factions themselves and the question of ""Who is a Jew"" extended to struggles in Israel until 1964 for the Bnei Israel and much later for the Bnei Menashe if they converted.
