Abstract

This essay looks into the conflicts and collaborations amongst different Jewish groups in Hong Kong from the second half of the nineteenth century to the years following Hong Kong?s handover to the People?s Republic of China (PRC) in 1997. In examining this former British Colony, now a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of People?s Republic of China, this essay adds a new dimension to the parallel discussions of intra-communal Jewish life in Europe and North America
