She has been awarded several national grants and awards including a 2021 Salo Baron New Voices in Jewish Studies Award at Columbia and Fordham Universities and a 2021-2022 Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture Grant. Her article, “‘The school is the link between the Jewish community and the surrounding milieu’: Education and the Jews of Iran from the mid-1940s to the late 1960s,” was published in 2021 in the journal of Middle Eastern Studies. In addition to her research efforts, Dr. Farah is a passionate, award-winning educator with significant teaching experience.
