The first-ever Kulanu-Kaifeng Speaking Tour, featuring tour guide and lecturer Shi Lei of Kaifeng, China, was a huge hit! Shi Lei’s events across the United States and Canada this May received such rave reviews we decided to invite him back for another tour next year. The tour will run February 15th to March 7th, 2011; read the full announcement here, then start making plans to invite Shi Lei to your local synagogue, JCC or other venue now! We are offering a $200 discount to organizations who confirm a date and pay the deposit by June 30th, 2010. See our online calendar to find out if the Kulanu-Kaifeng speaking tour is already coming to a town near you, or contact us to invite Shi Lei to your community next year!
