Hag Sameach! Chant down Babylon!

To observant Jews, this week is Passover or Pesach, which is a celebration of the Jewish people's escape from slavery in Egypt, mixed up with some Spring Festival-type seasonal fun. Here then, some Sino-Jewish links:

The Sino-Judaic Institute - a society aimed at encouraging the study and preservation of Jewish history in China;
China Judaic Studies Association - which is organizing a conference in Nanjing in August 2005 called 'Holocaust and Genocide in WWII: Jewish and Chinese Experiences';
Kehillat Beijing - Beijing Jewish community;
Shanghai Jewish Centre;
The Roots of Babylon - Why Rastafarians see the second period of Jewish slavery as the central story of their creed.
