Charles, have you considered including a reference to the KAIFENG in your game?  

KAIFENG is a city in China with a long Jewish history - it goes back many hundreds of years.  There is still a small Jewish community in the city, I believe.  Kaifeng Jews look Chinese, and differ from occidental Jews in that they trace descent through the father's line, rather than the mother's.  

I think some reference to Kaifeng would help to cement the connection I think you are making between China and Judaism.   Just a thought:-)

David.
