2. Monthly Shabbat dinner 


Join us as we continue with our monthly Shabbat dinners on Friday, August 29.
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.


We will be happy if you could join us!
