Jewish Travel in Asia

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Whether writing a Lonely Planet guidebook or just exploring on my own, wherever he travels Robinson tries to connect with the local Jewish community, if there is one, or at least find some evidence of a Jewish presence, past or present. This session will mix historical background on the Jewish communities of places such as Singapore, Hong Kong, Mumbai (Bombay) and Tokyo with practical information on establishing contact with local Jewish institutions.
