Sino-Judaica Returns with New Volume

Thanks to the extraordinary efforts of SJI Board member Dana Leventhal, SJI’s academic publication, Sino-Judaica, has been revived.  Sino-Judaica Volume 5 is devoted to a single academic monograph, “Jewish Religious Observance by the Jews of Kaifeng China” by Rabbi Dr. Chaim Simons of Israel.  This work connects the actual observance of the Kaifeng Jewish community in its heyday with their sources in halacha (Jewish law).  

It is available immediately at Lulu bookstore:

It is also available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.  Interested readers can do a Google Book Search in order to preview the book on Google Books. 

 

The hard-cover volumes sells for US $18, plus shipping.
