Webcast: Iranian rabbi championing online competition for funding L.A. Jewish school


I am always surprised and sometimes impressed at how involved L.A.’s Iranian Jews have become in Jewish life in the city since their migration from Iran during the last 30 years. I recently learned that the director of the Chabad affiliated “Bais Chaya Mushka” girls school in L.A. is headed by an Iranian—specifically Rabbi Danny Yiftach. Our meeting was unique because his school is among the top 20 school in the U.S. competing on Facebook.com for a contest to win $500,000!

Yiftach talks about the competition started by Kohl’s department store in our interview here….
