Narrated by Leonard Nimoy, Minyan In Kaifeng takes us into the homes of two families descended from an ancient Chinese Jewish community who themselves have never even celebrated Shabbat. They have invited a modern group of Jewish travelers into their homes, leading to a reunion one thousand years in the making. This film is a story of ancient Diaspora, of old dangers and newfound wisdom.



This program is presented in relation to the Jewish Refugees and Shanghai exhibit, on display February 3 – March 10, 2019. Tickets to public programs include admission to the Museum.
