Sadia Shepard's extraordinary odyssey began with her childhood discovery of a pin bearing the name "Rachel Jacobs" in her grandmother's jewelry box, and the revelation that her devout Muslim grandmother began life as a Jewish girl, a descendent of the Bene Israel, a tiny Bombay community with roots in the Israel of two thousand years ago.
