When I was a kid, my parents decided to make a big move. My mother and father both left Iran at the age of 15 and settled in Los Angeles where they established their home over the span of 20 years. The Iranian Jewish community of Los Angeles—which had grown dramatically just before and immediately after the 1979 Iranian Revolution—is an insular and tight-knit one. That’s why, when my parents decided to relocate the family to Denver, Colorado in the summer of 1994, it was a really BIG move.
