    Description
    On Sunday, September 14, 2008, the emerging leaders of the Iranian-American Jewish Community will host "30 YEARS AFTER: THE IRANIAN-AMERICAN JEWISH COMMUNITY AT A CROSSROADS." The daylong Conference will take place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and bring together over 1,200 leaders of the Iranian-American Jewish community and their allies in the broader Los Angeles community. The Conference is timed to coincide with the thirty-year anniversary of Iran's Islamic Revolution and precede the 2008 United States presidential election.

    The Conference will feature an opening plenary; a keynote gala; photography, video and art exhibits; a reception that will include a voter registration drive, book-signing opportunities for our speakers, and informational tables for our sponsoring organizations; and the following panels:

    I. IRAN: Thirty Years After The Revolution
    • What is the current plight of women and minorities in the Islamic Republic?
    • What are the prospects for democracy, regional stability and nuclear compromise?
    • What does the future hold for Jews in Iran and what role can Iranian-American Jews play as their advocates?

    II. UNITED STATES: Thirty Years In A New Home
    • In what ways has the Iranian-Jewish identity evolved in the United States and how can that identity survive America's melting pot?
    • What are the next steps and strategies to promote greater engagement of Iranian Jews in American political affairs?
    • What can the Iranian-Jewish community learn from the political experiences of other immigrant communities?

    III. ISRAEL: The Next Thirty Years Of Pro-Israel Advocacy
    • What are the prospects for peace and security for Israel with her Palestinian and Arab neighbors?
    • Given recent criticism of the "Israel Lobby," historic charges of dual-loyalty, and the increasing organization and influence of the anti-Israel community, what new and unique challenges do Israel and American Zionists face in the next thirty years?
    • What steps can the Iranian-Jewish community take to extend its Zionism beyond philanthropy and strengthen the U.S.-Israel alliance?


    To date, speakers at the conference will include Rabbi Marvin Hier, Malcolm Hoenlein, Congressman Henry Waxman, Congressman Brad Sherman, former Congressman Mel Levine, Rabbi David Wolpe, Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Dennis Prager, Beverly Hills Mayor Jimmy Delshad, Jewish Federation President John Fishel, Professor Nahid Pirnazar, Professor Anne Bayefsky, Dr. Morgan Hakimi, Ph.D., Dr. Sharon Baradaran, George Haroonian, Sam Kermanian, Pooya Dayanim, David Nahai, Kenneth Timmerman, and Michael Rubin.
