The Jewish people have long been drawn to the beauty and opportunity of the Far East. This year, with a little influence from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, we decided to honor these communities with holiday looks and treats from China, Japan, India, and more. Check out our Pinterest for delicious, easy to make recipes and our favorite Ready-to Wear looks with Asian flair that fit your budget.

For more on Jewish communities in the Far East pick up a copy of Pepper, Silk, and Ivory: Amazing Stories about Jews and the Far East by Rabbi Marvin Tokayer & Ellen Rodman, PhD, an engaging Yom Tov read. China: Through the Looking Glass is open at the Metropolitan Museum of Art until August 15th, 2015, when you check it out let us know what you think!
