Enid Bloch, a photographer and scholar from Buffalo, NY, in collaboration with Shi Lei, has made a superb slideshow on the history of the Kaifeng Community. Shi Lei will be working with this slideshow as the basis for his presentations.
For more about the Jews of Kaifeng, see the China community page on the Kulanu website at cyan.olm.net/~kulanu/china. Want to learn even more? Check the schedule above to see if the Kulanu-Kaifeng speaking tour is coming to a town near you, or contact us to invite Shi Lei to your community.
Enid Bloch is also the new layout and photography editor of our newsletter. She has been Harriet Bograd’sÂ friend since they entered Bryn Mawr College together in 1959, and I’m thrilled that she has now volunteered to take on major responsibilities for Kulanu.
