Article about Shi Lei’s tour

Shi Lei flew home to China on Monday.  He spoke to full houses all over the country, and received rave reviews. He also had the special experience of visiting collections of Kaifeng treasures at the Jewish Theological Seminary library, the library at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, and the Skirball Museum in Los Angeles.

Here is one of many articles that appeared about his tour:
