Upcoming Events

Monday, February 1st at 10:30 a.m. TJ Book Club

The Song of the Jade Lily by Kirsty Manning Leader: Susan Wolf-Schwartz

This is a gripping historical novel that tells the little-known story of Jewish refugees who fled to Shanghai during WWII. It is a lush, provocative, and beautiful story of friendship, motherhood, the price of love, and the power of hardship and courage that can shape us all.   This video gives some background into the Sephardim that arrived there much earlier than the 1930s.  Jewish emigrés through many centuries, came to Shanghai — and one of the only places in the world for Jews escaping Nazi persecution during WWII. The preserved Jewish ghetto is also discussed in the context of modern China.

 “Harbor from the Holocaust” this 30-minute local documentary examines the Pittsburgh connections to a little-known story of Jews who found refuge in Shanghai during the Holocaust.
