Sarah Cohen's wedding picture. Sarah was alienated by her community of the 'White Jews of Cochin' when she went against the norm and married a 'Black Jew', an Indian jewish man from Cochin. The White Jews were strictly allowed only to marry fair-skinned Ashkenazi jews, a practice that sealed their fate as a dying community in India. Photo by Suzanne Lee
