Come learn about the history, tenets and values of the Baha'i faith, which upholds the unity of God and the oneness of the human race. The Faith was founded in 19th century Persia by the Prophet/Founder Baha'u'llah. It is the 2nd largest minority religion in Iran, but its adherents have been discriminated against in Iran and elsewhere. Its Holy Shrines and offices are in Israel.
