Judeo-Persian in the 20th Century: New Research

Hosted By: HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project

This panel on Judeo-Persian is the final event in “Languages of the Jews of Iran,” a groundbreaking series from the HUC-JIR Jewish Language Project. First, Dr. Daniella Farah explains why Jews in Iran shifted from Judeo-Isfahani, Judeo-Shirazi, etc., to Standard Persian. Dr. Habib Borjian and Ibrāhīm Šafiʿī present personal documents written in Persian in Hebrew letters. Alan Niku discusses the distinctive Tehran Jewish dialect of Persian based on recordings and fieldwork. Finally, Cantor Jacqueline Rafii presents Passover psalms translated into Judeo-Persian and recorded by her grandfather in Tehran in 1971.
