The Story


Hi and Welcome! 

My name is Xiaoming, born in Shanghai and moved to the USA at 9 years old.

At 29 years old, I discovered I may be part Jewish. During my personal search for heritage, I also discovered that I could be Japanese as well.

This blog is my journey to discover Judaism from a Chinese perspective (and other random perspectives) 🙂


1. allofasuddenpartJew is a World Relations project to promote cultural understanding between all people.

2. allofasuddenpartJew is apolitical, nonpartisan, and loves all nationalities and ethnicities.

3. allofasuddenpartJew is on a quest to confirm and understand family history and does not guarantee and confirm a specific heritage.

    Hi Xiaoming.
    It was fun to meet you and your mother at Toby’s Mah Jongg class last night. Looking forward to a Mah Jongg game with you in the future.
