Roger Cohen speaks with Iranian Jews at Sinai Temple



Roger Cohen’s recent columns about the rosy life of Jews in Iran did nothing to endear the New York Times columnist to Iranian Jewish ex-pats in Los Angeles. You know, those people who personally experienced the persecution of Jews and have family still in Tehran.

Jewish Journal Editor-in-Chief Rob Eshman, in his column last week, invited Cohen to visit Los Angeles and talk with our sizable Persian Jewish population. Coincidentally, Sinai Temple’s Rabbi David Wolpe did the same.

VideoJew Jay Firestone is broadcasting Cohen’s appearance at Sinai, scheduled to begin 10 minutes ago, live.
