Asia's Unique Jewish Communities

Sunday, March 7 at 10:00 am on Zoom

Take a virtual and highly visual journey to the world’s largest continent and learn about the history and resilience of several fascinating Jewish communities. Dan Fellner, an experienced travel writer specializing in Jewish destinations and a recent Fulbright Fellow in Asia, will share his firsthand observations of Jewish life in such diverse countries as Vietnam, Myanmar, India, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, and China. Learn about the thousands of European Jews who found a safe-haven in Shanghai during the Holocaust, the unique Bene Israel community in India, and the throngs of Israeli tourists who flock to Thailand every year. You’ll also learn about the tremendous contributions of the Kadoorie and Sassoon families, both of which have built economic empires throughout the continent.

Fellner, a faculty associate at Arizona State University, is a seven-time Fulbright Fellow and has taught courses in journalism and communications at eight overseas universities. As a travel writer, he has visited over 120 countries and published more than 100 travel articles in such publications as USA Today, Hadassah Magazine, the Jewish News Service and Aish HaTorah.
