Maharashtra To Promote Jewish Places For Tourism

Date:

Heritage Jewish places in Maharashtra will be promoted as tourist places, the state government said on Thursday, reports PTI.

Tourism Minister Mangal Prabhat Lodha signed a letter of intent in this regard with officials from the Israeli Consulate.

“Maharashtra will conserve Jewish monuments and other places in the state to boost tourism in the state. The Jews have been part of our society for centuries and many of them have adopted our culture and language as well,” the minister said after the event.

There are some prominent Jewish structures in Mumbai, Thane, Pune, and other parts of the state which will be promoted under this tourism plan, he said.

The Konkan belt of Maharashtra has had pockets of a Jewish population for centuries.
