In this lively presentation, Robyn shares stories, photos, video and music to explore the extraordinary history of the Jewish communities in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Kaifeng; and traces their emergence as the fastest growing Jewish region in the world, today.

Robyn served as the Cantor for the United Jewish Congregation of Hong Kong and officiated at the first Bar Mitzvah celebrated in Beijing. She also leads Jewish Heritage Tours to China.

TI’s Women’s Network presents this program in conjunction with several other synagogues.
