I prefer Shirley Berry Isenberg:

India's Bene Israel: A Comprehensive Inquiry and Sourcebook.
by Isenberg, Shirley Berry.

Publisher Information:
Judah L. Magnes Museum Berkeley, California 1988

Octavo in dust jacket, xxxii, 443 pp., b/w photos, statistical tables, glossary and historical notes for Indian Terms used in the book, Glossary and Notes for Jewish terms used in this book, bibliography, index

A thorough scholarly study of the largest of India's three major Jewish communities. What began for the author as an anthropological work expanded to include a clear exposition of the Indian environment and of the history fo the community. The Bene Israel were largely in the area of Bombay and in the adjacent Kolaba disctrict along the western coast of India. A thriving community that peaked in the 1940s the Bene Israel are now a very small remnant.
