CHINA: our "people-to-people experience"
"Our family group met with a group of scholars, elders of the descendants of the ancient clans
created by the Emperor who greeted the first Jews who arrived in their flight from Israel after
the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem. Family members of these
remaining clans attended the Bar/Bat Mitzvahs which were held at the site of the ancient
Kaifeng synagogue, and also attended the gala bar/bat mitzvah party.
"One of the days on the tour included activities and interaction between the young people
with whom their American counterparts would continue their correspondence when
they returned from their awesome experience in China. The adults also had the
opportunity to have social interaction with their Chinese contemporaries.
All told, it was
an awesome experience."
