The Jewish Taipans Who Built Shanghai
Sponsored by Historic Shanghai
RMB 200 members, 300 nonmembers
This walk will explore the legacy of Shanghai’s Jewish taipans, from the famous to the forgotten. In 1845, nearly a century before the arrival of Jewish refugees from Europe, Baghdadi Jews came to Shanghai from India, and came to own large swathes of the city. Some came with money, some built fortunes, and most remained for generations. The story, and the influence, of Shanghai’s Jewish taipans lives on in Shanghai’s architecture, from landmark buildings to streets, synagogues, clubs, and associations.
