dc.descriptionThis is one of hundreds of 60-second radio spots created by the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) for Kansas Public Radio (KPR). The purpose of this outreach program is to introduce the people of Kansas to the culture and current issues of East Asia.
dc.description.abstractBroadcast transcript: In Chinese, the syllables a li ya can have a variety of meanings depending on tone and character. One interpretation could be this: Oh! Leaving Asia. In Hebrew, aliyah means "the immigration of Jews to Israel." And this is exactly what a few young Chinese people are doing: leaving Asia and going to Israel. They are descendants of the Jews who left Persia in the 10th Century and settled in Kaifeng where they built temples, practiced Jewish ritual and received seven special surnames from a Ming Emperor. Eventually, they became so assimilated that only these last names identify them as Jews at all. Now these young Chinese Jews are in Jerusalem reconnecting with their heritage. From Middle Kingdom to Middle East. #china #hacker #israel #ceas
