    I’m working a project that has to do with Jews in Mumbai, specifically Byculla area. I was wondering if you have a bibliography or particular sources for the information you’re sharing?

    I would be really helpful!

    Hi Daniel, I’m interested in your source for who started the first cotton mill — Albert or Jacob. I’m writing a piece about Indian Jews and the Sassoons’ contributions to Bombay, but the Stanley Jackson book seems to peg it as Jacob. Can you clarify? The history’s confusing.

    Hi Daniel,
    Great article. I am researching Rachel Sassoon born in 1860 in Mumbai. Do you know whose daughter she was?
