The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life is one of the five largest Jewish artifact-based collections in the world. With support from the Fund, it will stage an exhibit documenting the history and customs of Jews in Kerala, South India. This will highlight a part of the Jewish diaspora that is not well known; the Kerala Jewish community was able to fully integrate with local Muslims, Hindus, and Christians. This Magnes Collection exhibit helps to break down the stereotype of Jewish culture and history as originating exclusively from Europe.
