Re: Letter of Appreciation to Jewish Council for Public Affairs
Dear Paul Rockower,
Thanks for the Letter of Support, both in English &Mandarin dated February 21, 2020, to Our Friends in the Chinese American and Chinese Communities by Jewish Council for Public Affairs, on behalf of more than 70 Jewish organizations from the across the United States, including the rabbinical bodies of the four major branches of Judaism.
Equally thankful is your article “When global health issues arise, solidarity is the antidote” published on Jewish News dated March 6, 2020.
We are thrilled and deeply appreciative of your support and care when Chinese communities across the US are experiencing difficulties and discrimination due to the wide spread of malicious allegations and misinformation against Chinese Americans over fears of the COVID-19 or Coronavirus.
The long-lasting friendship between us may be traced as far back as World War II. Dr. Ho Feng Shan, the consul general of the then Nationalist Chinese government’s consulate in Vienna, saved perhaps tens of thousands of Jews from the Holocaust by issuing visas allowing desperate Jews to escape from Nazi-occupied Austria — in defiance of his superior’s orders. Dr. Ho is often hailed as “the Chinese Schindler,” in honor of this great man. Chinese families in Shanghai and Harbin, risked their lives, opened their doors to host tens of thousandsof European Jews escaping Japanese persecution. From the start, there was a friendship and warmth among our communities, and it is our honor to continue that tradition here in Arizona and US.
Coincidently, this May is the Jewish American Heritage Month and also Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Together, we pledge to uphold our historical friendship and carry on our tradition and heritage forward to celebrate many of our shared values such as family, education, entrepreneurship, etc.
Thank you again for your kindly and timely support.
