Jews of Iran



Jews of Iran

Did you know that there are still Jews living in Iran today?

The Jews of Iran event grew out of my surprise in discovering this information. My curiosity was a catalyst to weeks of research on this community and on the Persian Jewish community in North America.

What started as a small talk has evolved into a full evening celebration of the culture, heritage and history of the Jews of Iran. As well, a cross-cultural and bridge building initiative with the greater Iranian community has come about thanks to this community’s incredible support of the event. I encourage you to join us Tuesday October 24th. The evening promises to be an enlightening and informative opportunity to learn and celebrate through art, music, imagery, refreshments and discussion.
