The Iranian Jewish Family in Transition

By Bruce A. Phillips, Mitra Kahrizi Khalili

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1995

The Iranian family in America is in transition between the traditional and American models of family life, and the difficulties of coping with this transition will remain a reality for Iranian Jews. Iranian young people want more independence and envy the open communication and freedom of American families, yet they still value the support and close involvement of the traditional Iranian family.
