About Us

The Iranian Zoroastrian Association (IZA),  originally functioning with The Zoroastrian Association of Greater New York (ZAGNY), was independently founded in 1986. IZA aspires to meet the educational, cultural, and religious needs of the growing Iranian-American Communities in the Northeastern United States region.  Although IZA is based in the State of New York, our coverage also encompasses interested members and enthusiastic prospects from the States of New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts (Boston), Pennsylvania (Philadelphia), Virginia and Washington D.C.  As a non-profit, educational, religious and cultural organization, IZA conducts religious ceremonies, celebrates national [Iranian/Persian] holidays and rituals, and organizes and/or sponsors cultural congregations and events. IZA strives to sustain and pass on the Zoroastrian faith, preserve the Iranian (Persian) cultural rituals and to provide educational opportunities in the teaching of  Zoroastrianism, Persian language and culture, and history of Iran.

IZA has offered Mehrayeen Persian School since 2002.  As a community school, Persian classes are held for heritage and non-heritage learners, students from toddlers to senior citizens, at the Zoroastrian Darb-e-Mehr in Suffern, New York on the second Sunday of each month, commencing in September  and concluding in June (ten sessions). For more information, please visit www.Mehrayeen.com.  You may also visit the Upcoming Events. For future functions.
