Monthly Shabbat dinner
Join us as we continue with our
monthly Shabbat dinners on Friday,
This month our guest speaker will be our
community member Paul Ross, who will share with us the presentation he developed called "Mao's Jews".
The story of the thousands of Jews who fled Europe, took refuge in Shanghai, and eventually built schools, synagogues, and businesses there is one we are quite
familiar with. This often-told story ends with the departure of all the refugees from China when the Communists take over in 1949, a clean and satisfying
conclusion to a moving chronicle that leaves no ends loose or questions unanswered.
But did all of Jewish refugees in fact leave? Was there not one who stayed behind and somehow made a go of it in Mao’s China? Is a tantalizing question
that piques our curiosity and stokes the imagination.
“Mao’s Jews” tells the less well-known, yet fascinating story of a small group of Jewish doctors, journalists, and opportunists who stayed on in China after 1949
and eventually worked their way into Mao’s inner circle, serving as valued advisers, trusted emissaries, and even revolutionary leaders.
