Growing Up Jewish and Chinese in America

Event: Growing Up Jewish and Chinese in America
Devorah Goldstein
Avraham Schwartzbaum’s daughter from The Bamboo Cradle


Mrs. Devorah Goldstein, a resident of Baltimore, was born in China. Abandoned by her parents at a train station, she was found by an American Jewish couple, the Schwartzbaums, who adopted her and brought her to live with them. In a famous book, The Bamboo Cradle, Professor Schwartzbaum tells the story of how Devorah changed their lives and brought them back to a traditional Jewish life. Devorah now teaches elementary school in Baltimore and speaks widely about her experiences as a Chinese-American Orthodox Jew.

Support by the Diane Cummins Community Education Fund. Co-sponsored by OSU Hillel, the Asian American Studies Program, the Multicultural Center, Central Ohio Families with Children from China, and the Honors and Scholars Pressey Course Enhancement Grant
