The connection is considerably stronger, if my memory
is accurate. The largest Jewish city (that is, the
city with the most Jews) in the world, about a thou-
sand years ago, was Peking. Jews did not just make
expeditions to China; they extended their diaspora
there, and naturalized. I can't think of a single
reference I know covers this, but you might start with
*The Jews, Their History*, edited by L. Finkelstein.
