Virtual Tour of the Silk Road: A Jewish Experience (Part 2)

Hosted By: Baltimore Zionist District

In the second part of this series, we will continue our journey through the Silk Road and enter China from the Western edge. In this enormous country, we will travel from the Taklamakan Desert to the Tien Shan Mountains. We will learn the fate of thousands of Jews seeking shelter in Eastern China during the Holocaust on this excursion. We will also visit fascinating temples- Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, and Jewish. However, our trip doesn’t stop there because we get to explore the Jewish community in Kaifeng and pay a visit to the Jewish republic tucked away at the far edges of Siberia, where everything is written in Yiddish!
