Learning about my people
My class is learning about conflict and justice. We took a field trip to the Jewish refugee museum, which is very cool because I am Jewish and I love history. On one floor you can learn about the Nazi death camp and how the Jews lived. Another exhibit tells stories about Jewish refugees who went to shanghai and what where their lives like. My favorite part was sitting where Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife sat. This place is great for adults and kids. I know that because I'm 10 and all the classes loved the tour! Make sure to bring a camera!

A very moving experience
Oct 2011 • Couples
We are Israeli and especially made a point of visiting the Jewish museum in Shanghai. We weren't disappointed - it was a very moving experience. The whole museum is done in an outstanding way and makes you feel as though you're living the experience. A definite must!

Ohel Moshe synagogue
Dec 2011 • Couples
Built in 1927, the former Ohel moshe synagogue was also the headquarters of the Jewish Youth Organization. Between the year 1937 and 1941, Shanghai has received 25,000 Jewish refugees and became the only metropolis in the world which did not refuse Jews. The number of Jewish refugees that Shanghai took in was equal to the total taken in by Australia, New Zealand, Canada, India and South Africa. "Ohel Moshe Synagogue" became a synonym for "rescue" and "refuge".
Being an important part of Shanghai Jewish Heritage, on Jan. 13 2004, the former Ohel Moshe Synagogue was acknowledged as an excellent historical building and the People's Government of Shanghai's Hongkou District declared it to be a protected cultural relic site. Now, converted into the Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum, the three-storey house has been restored to its original state. Its walls are painted grey barred with lines of red bricks. Walk into the quiet main hall, and you will find the ornamentally engraved doors wide open for visitors. It is very quiet. The walls and pillars of the baroque, stone-arched door way have been repainted. The old stuff was gone, except the only the floor tiles are original, from the time of the Jewish occupation, the chairs and the pendant lamps being newly added in the hall. The chairs in the front of the hall are arranged as a place of worship. The Old pictures of Jewish halls and many houses built by Sassoon (a wealthy Jewish merchant) hang on the walls. The decorations and furnishings in the building create a serene and auspicious atmosphere. 
It is located in the "Jewish getto" about 7 min from the bund. 50 rmb fee entrance
