The Rabbi shows off a photo from his collection. It's of a man - dressed as a Tibetan monk - wearing a kippah and lighting a menorah.
"This man was born a Jew but now practises as a Buddhist monk. He is not the only one. I have met a few."
For Rabbi Mendi Crombie and his wife, Talia, reaching out to "Jew-Bu's" is only part of their assignment in Sri Lanka. They came to the country two years ago to set up the Chabad centre in Colombo - a difficult job because - unlike India - Sri Lanka has no indigenous Jewish community.
