The Jewish Communities of Kaifeng & San'a 
The exotic Jewish communities of Kaifeng (China) and San'a (Yemen) are the subject of this fascinating video. About 1,000 years ago, a group of Jewish merchants from Persia settled in Kaifeng, the then capital of China. Jews were welcomed and given complete religious freedom. Over the years, they adopted some of the local customs and married Chinese women who converted to Judaism. In the second segment, the lifestyle of the Jews of San'a is thoroughly explored up to and including their immigration to Israel after 1948.
