King David Society Mission to China: March 9-17, 2015 (suggested minimum)
A community of philanthropists who contribute $25,000 or more, to the federation annual campaign that share a passionate concern for issues that affect the worldwide Jewish Community, and set inspiring standards in philanthropic giving will be travelling to China.  Steeped in history and rapidly emerging as a world power, today’s China is a fascinating mix of the modern and the ancient, the dazzling and the quaint. Together we’ll tour imperial palaces, climb the Great Wall and explore winding backstreets. And we’ll encounter the incredible Shanghai Jewish community—founded by Baghdadi Jews in the 1800s, a refuge for thousands fleeing the Holocaust and the Russian Revolution, and, though small, still going strong today.Details
