Background
Founded in 1985 in Palo Alto, the Sino-Judaic Institute has sought to study and promote the ancient Jewish community of Kaifeng, China and to assist the descendants in reconnecting with their Jewish heritage. They also have actively worked with Chinese authorities to promote tourism to Kaifeng and to open current exhibits on the Kaifeng Jews to the public, and have worked to promote Sino-Judaic relations. In keeping with these goals, the Institute has supported scholarly research, conferences, as well as tourism and travel to various locations in China.
