Description

In conjunction with Light and Shadows: The Story of Iranian Jews, entrepreneur Sam Nazarian (left), actress Bahar Soomekh, Tabby Davoodi (30 Years After), and professor Saba Soomekh (right) break taboos by discussing: najeeb (sexual purity) and the difference in expectations between men and women; homosexuality within the Iranian Jewish community; socio-economic disparity and the pressure to “fit in” financially; the baal teshuvah movement (those embracing Orthodox Judaism); career choices outside the societal norms; and other issues faced by young Persian Jews as they navigate between their Persian, American, and Jewish identities.

Co-presented with the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles, the Anti-Defamation League, and the UCLA LGBT Campus Resource Center.
