"The Fulbright experience has transformed my research, art and life forever. 
With the help of the Fulbright fellowship I conducted a 4-month project to explore and reveal the various Indian Jewish faces of India in a visual art exhibition.  
The goals of this project are to raise awareness about the long-standing history of the Indian Jewish communities in India and document, using photography and painting, the individual faces and stories of this ancient group and their 
heritage before their existence becomes a cultural relic of India." 
- Siona Benjamin, 2013
