    Community Gatherings, Galas & Trips
    June 4–17, 2019 | Beijing—Tianjin—Harbin—Xian—Nanjing—Shanghai: Encounter some of the most breathtaking attractions on earth: the Great Wall, the imperial palaces in the Forbidden City, the shrines in the Temple of Heaven, and the ancient 8,000 Terracotta Warriors in Xian. In Harbin, Manchuria, enter the largest synagogue in East Asia. In Nanjing, visit the memorial to the 1937 massacre carried out by the Japanese and ponder the similarities between the genocidal occupation of China and Nazi Germany’s subjugation of Eastern Europe. In Shanghai, walk through the former ghetto, a refuge during the Holocaust for almost 25,000 Jews. From the Jewish merchants in the 19th century treaty port of Tianjin, to Israeli entrepreneurs, scientists, and engineers in today’s China, experts will help us consider the interaction of two of the world’s oldest civilizations.
