The Fugu Plan: An Evening With Rabbi Marvin Tokayer

The Fugu Plan: An Evening With Rabbi Marvin Tokayer
"The Fugu Plan" was a top-secret plan to create an ” Israel in Asia” under Japanese control by offering displaced European Jews a safe haven in Manchuria in return for the financial and technical skills they would bring to this outpost of the Japanese Empire.
Although this so-called “Fugu Plan” unfortunately did not materialize due to Japan’s entry into the Tripartite Pact with Nazi Germany and Italy in 1940, Japan was instrumental in the survival of thousands of Jews who were issued Japanese transit visas and given wartime refuge in Asia.
Rabbi Marvin Tokayer served as the Rabbi to the Far East from 1968-1976 and has authored two books on “the history of Judaism in the Orient, “The Fugu Plan" and his most recent, "Pepper, Silk and Ivory."
The lecture will be held at Herzog Wine Cellars in Oxnard and will begin at 7:00pm. The cost is $12. There will be an optional "Wine & Small Bites Reception" at 6:30pm for an additional $18. All are welcome to join!
