Please join us on December 4 for a community-wide show of support in solidarity for the people of Iran as we convene Jewish, Iranian, and multifaith community members across LA for an evening of learning, dialogue and inspiration. AJU’s Vice President for Jewish Engagement, Rabbi Tarlan Rabizadeh, will moderate a panel with our distinguished speakers on what has led to the current Iranian revolution with Gen Z+ women at the forefront, why this humanitarian crisis matters to the Jewish community, and where we go from here.
Please submit your questions for our panelists in your rsvp.
