Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: Mumbai
(Meals: L, D)
On your first day, visit the Knesset Eliyahoo Synagogue (also known as Fort Jewish Synagogue), established in 1884 and wonderfully adorned with colorful pillars, chandeliers, and stained-glass windows. Proceed to the Magen David Synagogue, a Victorian building with Gothic-like frontal pillars and a clock tower. Next, continue to Tiphereth Israel Synagogue, one of the oldest synagogues in Mumbai. Later, visit the Gate of Mercy Synagogue, established in 1796 by Late Commandant Samaji Hasaji Divekar (Samuel Ezekiel Divekar). After dinner at a city restaurant, return to your hotel for the night.

Day 2: Alibaug (Meals: B, L)
After breakfast, depart from the Gateway of India by a catamaran for Mandwa, and drive to the Magen Aboth Synagogue in Alibaug. The place was famous as the first town in Konkan where the Bene Israel, the largest Jewish community of Indian Jews, erected a synagogue.
