Iranian Jewish history on show at Beit Hatefutsoth

| |

An exhibition on the Jews of Iran showcasing the community’s 2,700-year-old history and rich heritage opens on Thursday at Beit Hatefutsoth in Tel Aviv.

The exhibition includes archeological and cultural artifacts, including ancient manuscripts, talismans, carpets and both secular and religious music. The exhibition also includes contemporary artworks by Iranian Jewish artists now living in Israel, Europe and the United States.

“We are deeply honored and excited that Beit Hatefutsoth will be the first to expose the fascinating life of Persian Jewry, which to date has not received the full attention it deserves,” said Irina Nevzlin Kogan, president of the NADAV Foundation, Beit Hatefutsoth’s major benefactor.
