From a Village in China To the Wedding Canopy in Jerusalem – Baruch Gordon


From Israel National News:

Shlomo and Dina Jin are descendants of the Jewish community that existed for nearly a thousand years in Kaifeng, China.

With the help of the Shavei Israel organization, the Jins recently completed their conversion back to Judaism by Israel’s Chief Rabbinate, and will be getting married at 5:30 PM at Heichal Shlomo, 58 King George Street, Jerusalem.

“This marks the closing of an historical circle,” said Shavei Israel Founder and Chairman Michael Freund. “Nearly 200 years after the Kaifeng Jewish community essentially ceased to exist, two of its offspring will be joining together in matrimony under a Jewish wedding canopy in Jerusalem.”
