Hi, there! I will be in Bangladesh over Yom Kippur and I would love to find a shul. I've been googling for two days now -- all combinations of "jews" "dhaka" "bangladesh" "synagogue" and have come up with some compelling stories about a Bangladeshi journalist who was imprisoned for pro-Israel sentiments, but no actual information about any Jewish life in Bangladesh. Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!

There is no shul in Dhaka. There are a few Jews among the expatriate community. There is a small group gathering for erev RH. There will probably be a very lean observance of Yom Kippur among a few people,we simply have to make do. The closest shul/service options are Bangkok, HK,Singapore and India (Delhi or Cochin) Call 01731156945 when you come to town, we might have more info. 2009-01-17 05:30:31 - Akib Re: Jews in Bangladesh?

I learned it from aa popular daily Prothom Alo someday ago that there was a Jews family living in Rajshahi City, Bangladesh. They lived there about 150 years, they were traders and have good relation with local muslim community. but now the descendants of the family has migrated to India, Israel and United States. Now there may be some Jews family who are connected to Bangladesh due to their marriage relation or working in Bangladesh. But there is no evidence of Jews in Bangali Community.
London neighbourhoods Our family of four is traveling to London in July. We would like to look for an air bnb in a secular neighbourhood within an hour's walk to an Orthodox synagogue. Can you suggest some neighbourhoods for us to try?
how to ship belongings What does Customs allow or what items do they tax heavily. I have electronics, laptop, tablet, printers, I need as a writer, and also want some household items for an apt. with me. Want to give out blankets, soup, and bread to poor and shut-in Holocaust survivors too. Have Israeli friends, but don't want to bother them before I visit them. No idea who to contact for apt. search and for Customs requirements.
