about this item

In 1976, at the age of twenty-three, Farideh Goldin left Iran in search of her imagined America. While she settled uneasily into American life, the political unrest in Iran intensified and in 1979, Farideh’s family was forced to flee. They arrived in Israel as refugees. Farideh’s father was a well-respected son of the chief rabbi and dayan of the Jews of Shiraz. During his last visit to the United States in 2006, he handed Farideh his memoir that chronicled the years of his life after exile.Leaving Iran knits together his story of dislocation and loss with Farideh’s own experience as an Iranian Jew in a newly adopted home.
