Jews have always, and continue to be, just a small group in Japan. This presentation will cover the early history of Jews in Japan from the mid 1500’s through today. Never have there been more than a few thousand Jews living in Japan, but the history has intersected with famous events in Japan, Asia, and the world.
Jerome (Jerry) Rosenberg has lived in Tokyo with his wife Marsha for over 45 years, first arriving in 1972 after graduating from Ohio State University. He has been an active member of the Jewish Community of Japan, serving as President for five years and a board member for 20 years. Before starting his own consulting company in 2001, he held a number of executive positions in foreign companies, including President of Christian Dior Cosmetics Japan and of Tumi Japan. Now retired from business, Jerry is AJC Asia Pacific Institute’s representative in Tokyo.
