The Chinese-Jewish Conversation (CJC) at Yeshiva University continues to expand its presence on Chinese social media and in the Chinese academic community, creating a cultural bridge between these two ancient traditions. The expanding CJC Chinese-language blog introduces a range of topics on Jewish culture and history. We are also publishing a new video series on BiliBili (the Chinese equivalent of YouTube) with interviews that answer questions Chinese people have about Jews and Judaism. On April 6, 2022, the CJC held its first in-person event on campus since the pandemic: a commemorative gathering to mark the first Yahrzeit of Dr. Mordecai D Katz, a key benefactor of both Revel and the Katz school, which is attracting a growing population of Chinese students.
