Thanks to Davi Cheng, Be’chol Lashon Los Angeles Regional Director, I came across an awesome site called “Chinese and Chosen” by Candy Cheng and Brad Stell. (Former Journalism students at Columbia U.)
Chinese and Chosen examines the intersections of Chinese and Jewish cultures in New York City through interfaith couples, adoptive families, and those born with duo identities. It includes an interactive timeline tracing the history of Jews in China and documented accounts of what its like to be Chinese and Jewish (at the same time).
I was lucky enough to chat with Candy over the phone this past weekend to learn more about her and her mission. We will be keeping in touch in the future to do some joint projects I’m sure!
I highly recommend this site for more resources on the Chinese-Jewish connection. Until next time.
