"While hosting PM @narendramodi yesterday evening, PM @netanyahu gifted PM Modi a photo," the Prime Minister's Office tweeted.
PMO India (@PMOIndia) July 5, 2017Modi, who arrived in Tel Aviv yesterday for a three-day visit, presented the replicas of two sets of relics from Kerala, regarded as key artifacts of the long Jewish history in India.
The first set of copper plates is a cherished relic for the Cochin Jews in India. It is regarded as a charter describing the grant of hereditary royal privileges and prerogatives by the Hindu King, Cheraman Perumal (often identified as Bhaskara Ravi Varma), to the Jewish leader Joseph Rabban.
These plates describe the grant of land and tax privileges by the local Hindu ruler to a church.
