The Sino-Judaic Institute welcomes new members and works with continuing members from around the world to help strengthen the relationship between the Chinese and the Jewish people.
Members are the backbone of SJI, contributing ideas, doing outreach, and taking action on behalf of the Institute's overall mission. Whether you contribute financially to help send a Jewish descendant from Kaifeng to Israel, write a book review or an article for Points East, or donate historical material to the Sino-Judaic Archives at Stanford University, your support and involvement are invaluable.
The Arthur H. Rosen Sino-Judaic Memorial Fund provides grants for academic and creative projects related to the Jewish experience in China, supports opportunities for Chinese students and scholars to participate in conferences and do academic research, funds the translation of relevant Judaic-related texts and educational material into Chinese, and supports the development and strengthening of Judaic Studies programs in China.
The Shanghai Jewish Memories Fund supports SJI's efforts to interview and preserve the stories of Jewish refugees who lived in Shanghai, Tianjin, Harbin and elsewhere in the 20th century.
Established in memory of SJI Board member Denise Yeh Bresler, who championed SJI's educational program in Kaifeng, the Kaifeng Scholarship Fund provides opportunities for Kaifeng Jews to study Jewish tradition and culture overseas.
