Through the vivid prism of her family's story, Rahel Musleah introduces audiences to the distinctive heritage of the Jews of India and Iraq. The seventh generation of a Calcutta family, she traces her roots to 17th century Baghdad. Her multi-faceted visual, song and story presentations offer a rare and intimate view of a rich culture little-known to most. Rahel is an award-winning journalist, author, singer, storyteller, educator, tour leader, and pioneer as a woman prayer leader in the Sephardic/Mizrahi community. Her articles have appeared in numerous publications from The New York Times to Hadassah magazine. Her CD, Hodu: Jewish Rhythms from Baghdad to India, features songs for Shabbat and holidays that she grew up singing. She has been leading Jewish heritage tours of India since 2015. When she’s not on the road, she lives in Roslyn Heights, NY.
