Towards the Light
A Story of Freedom and Liberation

Chanukah celebrates the Jewish affirmation of our spiritual values, and a refusal to buckle down to life under extremist ideologies.

This Chanukah, Chabad Palo Alto brings you a different story of Freedom.

Jacqueline Saper's comfortable childhood and adolescence in a Jewish family in Iran ended in 1978 as the country convulsed with civil unrest and social clashes. In 1979 came a revolution: The Shah (king) was ousted, and Ayatollah Khomeini returned from exile. Iran was now an Islamic theocracy. In a deeply intimate and personal story, Jacqueline will be sharing stories from her memoir, "From Miniskirt to Hijab: A Girl in Revolutionary Iran," to provide us thought-provoking and inspiring views on overcoming difficult situations and fighting for self-determination.
