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, open current exhibits on the Kaifeng Jews to the public, and promote Sino-Judaic
relations. In keeping with these goals, the Sino-Judaic Institute has supported scholarly research and conferences, as well
as tourism and travel to various locations in China.
