Around the time of Rosh Hashanah (The Jewish New Year) I like to publish a not so friendly reminder of how the Gentile world has treated the Jew over the centuries. Unfortunately, this tragedy is being repeated — this time by the Muslims and with the help of many of the same Gentile executioners who, along with many Jews, lied, “Never Again.”
Compiled by Jerome S. Kaufman from many of the weekly entries in the Jewish Press listed by Columnist Jeff Reznik. Clarifying embellishments, usually in italics have been added by JSK.
This is a very partial list of important dates in the history. Please note that when it comes to the recording of the dates in ancient history, there are many disagreements between various biblical and temporal sources. But, no matter. The end results are the same.
There is nothing new about anti-Semitism. Successive Gentile and now Muslim generations continue to use the Jew as a useful, fail-safe, defenseless tool to blame for their own failures — frequently when there is not a Jew in sight! JSK

By the 17th century, a number of Chinese Jews had attained high ranks in the Chinese civil service, but along with success, came the blight of assimilation, which took an increasingly heavy toll on the community and its cohesion. As a result, by the mid-1800s, the Chinese Jews’ knowledge and practice of Judaism had largely faded away. The last rabbi of the community is believed to have died in the early part of the 19th century, and the synagogue was all but destroyed by a series of floods which struck the city in the 1840s and thereafter.
