The Keneseth Eliyahoo Synagogue is a significant place of worship for Mumbai’s Baghdadi and Bene Israeli Jewish communities. The restoration project, worth a total of about Rs 5 crore, was majorly funded by conglomerate JSW Group. Lambah says it took 10 years to find a willing sponsor, a fate many non-governmental buildings face.
