Jewish Life in China: Tales from the Far East
Hosted By: Qesher
There is a long and rich history of Jewish communities in China. In this talk we will explore the three places with the most relevant historical presence of Jews: Kaifeng (where a community was established in the Middle Ages and whose descendants still live today); Harbin (where Russian Jews thrived around the Trans-Siberian Railway), and Shanghai (where thousands of Jews came as refugees during WWII). We will also learn how Jewish life is today for Jews in China.
This talk is live and interactive, the number of participants is limited. With your contribution to Qesher you will also be donating to Moishe House Beijing.
