The Jewish community of Mumbai was hard hit during recent flooding in western India. The flooding, which has killed more than 1,000 people and destroyed at least 10,000 homes, has forced many Jews to relocate to neighbors’ houses and has caused widespread power outages, according to a memorandum issued by the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
