"Persia, Iran and the Jews" Past

Free Event

Dear all,

The Jewish community of Persia, modern-day Iran, is one of the oldest in the Diaspora. They have a history that begins over 2,400 years ago since the 6th century B.C.E, which is the time of the First Temple, and continues through today. Their history in the pre-Islamic period is intertwined with that of the Jews of neighboring Babylon.

As you might know, one of the most significant part of the Jewish history in Iran was during the world war II. According to available statistics, Iran's Pahlavi dynasty hosted nearly 116,000 Jewish refugees near Bandar-e Anzali (called Pahlevi back then), Mashhad, and Tehran.

Iranian Jews lived through a happy and prosperous period after the Second World War and until the advent of the Islamic revolution in 1979. In the decades following the Islamic Revolution of 1979, an estimated 85% of the Jews living in Iran (over 60,000) emigrated.

In recognition of the holocaust memorial day, Case Iranian Society plans to host the following special session:

Distinguished Speaker: Prof. Peter Haas, Chair and The Abba Hillel Silver Professor of Jewish Studies
