Iranian Jewish Organization: The Integration of an Emigre Group into the American Jewish Community

By David Mladinov

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1981

Used to a stong hierarchical social structure, the Iranian students did not know how to relate to the Jewish communal workers. Aware that the workers were not the directors of their agencies, it was hard for the Iranians to treat them as superiors. At the same time, in need of their services, it was inadvisable to treat the workers as inferiors. Their approach wavered from utmost respect to expecting the workers to perform menial tasks.
