Abstract

The Jews of Andhra Pradesh is an engaging and thought-provoking ethnography devoted to the Bene Ephraim--a Dalit group in India that has embraced Jewish tradition. Egorova and Perwez offer a nuanced and theoretically-informed account which explores how the story of the Bene Ephraim challenges and extends contemporary understandings of Jewishness and illuminates radical new directions in Dalit discourse.
