Westerners often imagine Jews in Iran as a captive and oppressed community, alienated within their home nation yet restricted from leaving it. The reality is much more complex. Jews of Iran is a photographic journey through twenty-first-century Iran, providing a unique view of the country’s Jewish community in situations typically unknown to the Western world. Photojournalist Hassan Sarbakhshian spent two years living among Iran’s Jewish communities, joining them for holidays, family gatherings, and travels, documenting how they lived. Join AJU’s Rabbi Tarlan Rabizadeh in conversation with Hassan Sarbakhshian for an in-depth discussion to learn the history about a community of people who live in the figurative and literal middle of Iran.
