Pan Guang, a professor at the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, will discuss the history of Jewish life in China during a public lecture on Thurs., Sept. 13, 6:30 p.m. at New York University’s Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life (58 Washington Square South, fourth floor/enter at 238 Thompson St.)
