Jews and Judaism in China are predominantly composed of Sephardi Jews and their descendants. Other Jewish ethnic divisions are also represented, including Ashkenazi Jews, Mizrahi Jews and a number of converts.
The Jewish Chinese community manifests a wide range of Jewish cultural traditions and it also encompasses the full spectrum of Jewish religious observance. Though a small minority, Chinese Jews have had an open presence in the country since the arrival of the first Jewish immigrants during the 8th century CE. Relatively isolated communities of Jews developed from ancient all the way to modern China, most notably the Kaifeng Jews (the term "Chinese Jews" is often used in a restricted sense in order to refer to these communities). In the 19th and early 20th centuries, Jewish merchants from around the world began to trade in Chinese ports, particularly in the commercial centres of Hong Kong, which was for a time a British colony; Shanghai (the International Settlement and French Concession); and Harbin (the Trans-Siberian Railway). In the first half of the 20th century, thousands of Jewish refugees escaping from pogroms in the Russian Empire arrived in China. By the time of the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949, only a few Jews were known to have maintained the practice of their religion and culture.

Thehistory of the Jews in Indiadates back toantiquity.Judaismwas one of the first foreign religions to arrive inIndiainrecorded history.IndianJewsare a small religious minority who have lived in India since ancient times. They have experienced very sparse instances ofanti-Semitismfrom the local non-Jewish majority.
The better-established ancient Jewish communities have assimilated many of the local traditions throughcultural diffusion.While some Indian Jews have stated that their ancestors arrived during the time of the BiblicalKingdom of Judah, others claim descent from theTen Lost Tribesof the pre-JudaicIsraeliteswho arrived in India earlier.Still some otherIndianJews contend that they descend from the IsraeliteTribe of Manassehand they are referred to as theBnei Menashe.
The Jewish population inBritish Indiapeaked at around 20,000 in the mid-1940s according to some estimates, with others putting the number as high as 50,000,but the community declined rapidly due to emigration to the newly formedIsrael, after thePartition of Palestineat the end of British Mandate in 1948.The Indian Jewish community is now estimated to count no more than 5,000 people
About the lost tribes. The Abrahamic blessing actually skipped Judah the brother who sold virtuous brother Joseph to slavery in Egypt. It Abraham's blessing skipped Judah and went to Joseph's sons Ephraim and Manasseh. These tribes sided with Israel in the United Kingdom and during the war between Israel and Judah; the 10 Tribes including the Abrahamic Blessed Tribes of Joseph (Manasseh and Ephraim) who went to war against Judah. They escaped to the Phoenicians and Greeks.
This Abrahamic blessing escaping from the Jews and going to the Mediterranean was apparent to the Jews that in the Book of Macabees the Greek Spartans were considered fellow Abrahamics by the Judeans.
