Ancient Chinese Community Celebrates Its Jewish Roots, and Passover!

Birmingham International Center features an event this month titled "Kreplach & Dimsum--Yes, There are Jews in China", which also features a "Jewish Refugees in Shanghai" exhibit.  This program focuses on Jewish Communities in China in cities such as Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Kaifang. These places are easily considered to be some of the fasted growing Jewish regions in the World.

We coincidentally came upon an interesting article about 12th Century Chinese Jews and their present-day celebrations of Passover.  This article also discusses their history.  Check it out by clicking the link below.
