Here you will read about the juvenile delinquent who later became known as the “uncrowned Jewish king of China,” the woman who refused to give up until the Japanese Constitution included rights for women and children, the secret behind one of the world’s most famous logos, and much more..
PEPPER, SILK& IVORY
Amaizing stories about Jews and the Far East
A book by Rabbi Marvin Tokayer & Ellen Rodman, PhD.
These are delightful, informative and altogether fascinating stories. Tokayer and Rodman have filled an important gap in Jewish history.
Richard Zoglin, author and Time Magazine theater critic, The New York Times
This fine, surprising addition to the history of the Jewish people awakens readers from the Eurocentric and Near East visions of Jewish culture and influence…the stories are wonderfully varied…the authors evidence their great passion for their subject. I am hopeful that this volume reaches every Jewish library and library of Far East history.
Philip K. Jason, Jewish Book World
