In an October 23 letter to IAJF board members, Nessah Syangogue Rabbi David Shofet, whom many local Iranian Jews consider the community's spiritual leader, suspended his membership in the organization.
Current IAJF leadership members said that despite the criticism and resignations, the group would continue to represent the interests of the Iranian communities in the United States and Iran as one of the primary voices for both.
"This is a free country, and everyone has the freedom to make his own decisions--if some do not want to continue with us, that is their choice," Solomon Rastegar, former IAJF president and current interim chair, said.
