If you have ever wanted to go to India, here is your chance. Dr. Nathan Katz, an internationally recognized authority on Indian Jewry, will lead a 13-day Jewish-interest tour of India Feb. 16-29, 2016. The tour will offer opportunities to meet and interact with members of India’s diverse Jewish communities, and has an itinerary that includes New Delhi, Agra (home of the Taj Mahal), Mumbai, Jaipur, and Kochi, where travelers will attend services at the city’s 16th-century synagogue. Katz is one of the world’s foremost experts on Indian Jews and has written a dozen award-winning books on the subject, including the National Jewish Book Award nominated, Who Are the Jews of India? He also is a four-time Fulbright scholar and was a delegate to the 1990 Tibetan-Jewish dialogue hosted by the Dalai Lama, who he brought to Miami three times. In addition, Katz is a distinguished professor emeritus at Florida International University and is the founding director of the university’s Program in the Study of Spirituality. He will retire on July 31, after 40 years of college teaching and said he is “excited” to share his knowledge of and love for India where he has lived and traveled extensively for years. – Miami Herald, July 21, 20152
