The Jews of Iran: Antisemitism and the Great Exodus with Roya Hakakian and Sarah Breger
Hosted By: Moment Magazine
While Jews have lived in Iran for centuries, today’s Jewish community numbers less than 10,000, down from 100,000 Jews prior to the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Roya Hakakian, author of Journey from the Land of No: A Girlhood Caught in Revolutionary Iran and A Beginner’s Guide to America: For the Immigrant and the Curious, will share what life was like prior to the revolution, the antisemitism that caused most Jews to flee and what life is like now for the Iranian Jewish community. Hakakian will be in conversation with Moment editor Sarah Breger.
This program is part of a Moment series on antisemitism supported by the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.
