Jews in China?!! For at least 13 centuries—and possibility more than two millennia—Jewish traders, adventurers, and refugees made their way into China via the Silk Road, settling in Kaifeng, Harbin, Tianjin, Shanghai, and Hong Kong among other cities. By the Northern Sung Dynasty (960-1127 CE), a Jewish community thrived in the central Chinese city of Kaifeng—then China's capitol—existing peacefully with its neighbors for at least 700 years. In the late 19th century, Sephardi Jews began to develop Shanghai. There some 10,000 Jewish refugees from Eastern European massacres and the Russian Revolution, in addition to some 20,000 Russian Jews who built thriving communities in Harbin and other cities in China's northeast. In the 1930s, Shanghai became the world's only port welcoming Jews fleeing Nazi aggression with no passports or documentation—their citizenship having been revoked by the Nazis. At least 30,000 Jews found shelter in Shanghai and China's other port and inland cities during the Holocaust. Today, China is home to modern Jewish communities and remains one of the world's only nations with no history of persecution of Jews. Joy's experience leading six Jewish heritage tours of China, her extensive photographs, insightful audio/visual materials, and enlightening discussion highlight today's lecture, which Joy has shared for educational and Jewish communities around the country. There is no charge for this program.

87-year-old composer/lyricist Jerry Herman, creator of iconic musicals Milk & Honey, Hello Dolly, Mame, Mack & Mabel, Dear World, La Cage Aux Folles, has known spectacular success and phenomenal failure. In 1961, the young writer burst on Broadway with Milk and Honey, plus Tony and Grammy nominations. Hello, Dolly! and Mame enjoyed monumental success, while Dear World, Mack and Mabel, and The Grand Tour floundered. La Cage Aux Folles renewed Herman's belief in himself and the American musical theatre. Not only was it a Broadway blockbuster, it was a personal heroic statement from Herman and his cocreator. Discover why these days remain The Best of Times for Jerry Herman and his musicals.

This is a man who, when given a simple prop like a stick, could present a freestyle improvisation in which the stick became a fishing rod, spear, giant beetle antenna, hatchet, and Bing Crosby's golf club. Every transformation—vocally, visually, and textually—was brilliant, all from the spontaneous top of Jonathan Winters' zany mind. More comedians refer to him as comedy's greatest genius than any other comedian in history. Robin Williams described Winters as "a rebel without a pause," and his comedy recordings as "auditory bliss." From Maude Frickert to Chester Honeyhugger, his characters became iconic figures in their own right. Jonathan's wife Eileen claimed that Jonathan went through his terrible twos—but they lasted 20 years! So prepare for a winter lift through a re-experience of the life and work of Jonathan Winters!

Seventy years ago in 1958, the iconic Peter Gunn Theme brought the talents of Henry Mancini to the attention of the world. Nominated for a first Emmy and two Grammys, Mancini's series was among the most memorable of the 1958-59 season. It was only the beginning of a mind-boggling career. An unprecedented 72 Grammy and 18 Oscar nominations attest to the timelessness of his music. Whether writing, arranging, conducting, or concertizing jazz-infused themes like Mr. Lucky and The Pink Panther, to lush symphonic masterpieces like Love Story, Charade, and Days of Wine and Roses, Mancini's themes are unforgettable. His scores transformed television and film, providing a timeless third-dimensional life to the events, characters, and emotions of his productions.

At 50, Australian actress/director Cate Blanchett remains among the world's most acclaimed actresses. In Australia, where she was born and where her career first came to prominence, she had already developed a distinctive image and displayed a passion for performing by her teens. International attention followed with her role as Elizabeth I—for which she received major awards in England and America. Moving on to a number of innovative roles—including her performance as Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator, which made her the only actor in history to win an Oscar for portraying another Oscar-winning actor, she is recognized for the intense range of her performances and her multiple award nominations and wins worldwide. The psychological thriller Notes on a Scandal, her breathtaking incarnations of Queen Elizabeth I in two feature films, and Bob Dylan in I'm Not There, her stunning lead performance in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, which brought her more than 40 industry and critics awards—are but a few examples. On stage and screen, she continues to stretch to her highest ability as an actor and director.
