Jacqueline Saper

Kolot Management is proud to bring you Ms. Saper, esteemed author, to be up close and personal with you via Zoom. In her award-winning memoir ‘From Miniskirt to Hijab,’ Jacqueline Saper explains how she went, almost overnight, from a life of wearing miniskirts to high school parties, to listening to fanatic diatribes, being forced to wear the hijab, and hiding in her basement as Iraqi bombs fell over her city.

Saper is one of very few Persian Jews of her generation to have lived before, during and after the revolution in Iran. She was the only bicultural Jewish girl in Tehran, and probably in the whole of Iran at the time.

Bring Saper to your community for a virtual personal discussion – the recent article on her in Times of Israel drew 6090 shares in 24 hours. See the article here. View Saper’s website here. This riveting review just came out in the Los Angeles Jewish Journal – it calls Jacqueline Saper’s story “spellbinding.”
