It’s hard to believe such positive news when so many of us are still worrying about the Jews in Venezuela and wherever else response to Israeli warfare breaks out into violent anti-Semitism (did you hear about the students at York University in Toronto?). But “What Iran’s Jews Say” paints a much happier picture of Jews in the diaspora, and amazingly, even Jews in Arab countries. Let’s just hope the news stays positive.
I was surprised to open up yesterday’s New York Times and find an article on Iranian Jewry. “There are still Jews in Iran?!” I exclaimed. Apparently, there are and according to Op-Ed columnist Roger Cohen, they are thriving there.
