Thank you all so much for being with us today.

How did your parents get along, since they were total opposites
Bella Davis DOROT MSW Intern
Thank you so much for your question, Susan! We will make sure to ask Esther at the end!
Elizabeth Kohl
Sorry I entered after starting. Are the values of both worlds the same and if so what are the similarities? Do you or your brothers embrace these two sides today? The newer Koran’s I am told are different from the Koran of the 1930’s, do you have any knowledge of this? Any thoughts for the future, for bridging and uniting?
Heda Silverstein
What a difference between your city and Hamadan where my friend grew up with a very dynamic Jewish community at the same period of time
Susan Karp
Do those communities live with the old traditions or are they integrated into the larger communities?
Bella Davis DOROT MSW Intern
Thank you so much for everyone for your engagement and meaningful questions. We will make sure to ask Esther at the end.
Susan Karp
That's the 200,000 year history of how men have tried to control women, via one cultural way or another.
