Iranian Community
In Israel

Culture & Heritage

The Merage Foundation has been working for over twenty years to preserve and develop the culture and heritage of the Iranian community in Israel through a variety of activities. These include an annual Iranian books fair, public singing events, and cultural events showcasing the work of community members.

The foundation has built a community database that includes information on history, culture, and art, involving leading lecturers in the community. In 2014, we produced a heritage book titled “The Journey from Iran to Israel”, which documents immigrant stories and collects information about the heritage of the various Jewish communities in Iran.
