  1. How does a growing trade relationship between Israel and China serve both countries as well as the United States?
  2.  Why are the Chinese so enamored of Jews and Jewish tradition? What complicates that interest? How do “memory” and “truth” link the two civilizations?
  3. Is there a role for China to play in the Middle East? What role might that be? How will China’s emergence as a Middle East player impact Israel?
  4. What ethical questions are raised for Jews buying goods made in China? How do we determine whether it is better to engage with China or to isolate China?
  5.  Are Jews a “light unto the nations”? And if so, how does that inform our dealings with others?
