  • Visit the areas of Shanghai that the Jews fled to during WWII
  • See the Ohel Moishe Synagogue, the spiritual heart of the Jewish community

At the beginning of WW II, about 30,000 Jewish refugees fled from Europe to Shanghai. Calling themselves ‘Shanghailanders’, most settled in the Hongkou district. Since then, Jews have made an important cultural impact on the economic and development of Shanghai. Bakeries, stores, cafes, synagogues, schools, clinics, cemeteries, and even a Jewish newspaper all flourished there.

On this tour, trace the origins, growth and development of the strong Jewish presence in Shanghai. See the iconic Ohel Moishe Synagogue. Built in 1927, this designated area became the home of approximately 20,000 refugees from Central Europe during WW II. Tour Huoshan Park, an oasis of calm and peace where the Monument in Memory of Jewish Refugees now stands.

Duolun Road is also a must-see stop because of the history, culture and humanity of 1920s-30s Shanghai.


You will be picked up from your hotel in an air-conditioned private vehicle and taken for a sightseeing tour of the Jewish landmarks in Shanghai. An English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.

The highlights of your tour include:

Ohel Moishe Synagogue: Built in 1927, the Ohel Moishe Synagogue served as the spiritual heart of Shanghai’s Jewish community and currently houses the Museum for Jewish Refugees. It has been reconstructed to its original appearance and features a photo exhibition from the period.
