Taichung City – Taiwan Hotel Boasts Talmudic Theme

    Instead of the traditional Bible in the nightstand drawer, every room at the Talmud Business Hotel has a copy of Talmud-Business Success BibleTaichung City – If you are visiting Taiwan and looking for a taste of home, you might want to book a stay at the Talmud Business Hotel in Taichung. Located on Liou Chuan West Road in Taichung City, the hotel hopes to appeal to business travelers by appealing to the Chinese fondness for Jews that seems to include a notion that learning the Talmud can somehow foster success in business. In fact, books with names such as Crack the Talmud: 101 Jewish Business Rules, The Illustrated Jewish Wisdom Book and Know All of the Money Making Secrets of the Talmud are all reportedly popular in China.

    Instead of the traditional Bible in the nightstand drawer, every room at the Talmud Business Hotel has a copy of Talmud-Business Success Bible, which according to the hotel’s website is “for anyone who would like to experience the Talmud way of becoming successful.” The red interior of the hotel is reportedly inspired by “Talmud theory” to add a splash of fashion and professionalism.

    While it appears that the Chinese are fascinated with Jews, their interest extends beyond the perception that Jews are good at making money. In fact, according to Google, the fourth most asked “why” question in Mandarin in 2009 is “Why are Jews excellent?”

      • Maybe we will next see the Schottenstein translation of the Bavli into Chinese!

        FWIW, China has zero history of anti-Semitism. Neither does India. Those are the two largest countries in the world. Why have Jews not flocked to those countries, preferring to stay in places where we were regularly persecuted?

          Perhaps because Chinese food does not agree with me, and because Indian food aggravates my stomach ulcers.

          You just cannot get a decent potato kugel east of Meah She’arim, you know.

    1. there is no anti semitism because there are no Jews. If Jews in any significant numbers lived there and rose to take top jobs and positions they would engender jealousy and there would be anti semitism. But since each country has over 1 billion people each, 1/10 of 1% or about 10 million jews can likely safely live there before anti semitism crops up. I have a theory that over that limit and thats when the problems start.
