Return to Zion: ‘From the land of Sinim’

Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport has been witness to many an emotional scene over the past few decades, as millions of Jews from around the world have come home to Zion after centuries of wandering. A veritable symphony of languages can often be heard in the arrivals hall, as Jews from as far afield as Russia, Brazil, Ethiopia and France have all taken the step of returning to the land where their ancestors once walked, just as the prophets foretold.

To that long and varied list of new immigrants can now be added another extraordinary group: the Jews of Kaifeng, China.
