wowowo, i am really amazed , isn't such a trip dangerous ? if 1 person there detects that you are Jewish i don't have to tell you whats next , why would you do such a trip ?
however in today's days i don't thnik that its so scary to travel to Iran after the Iran deal with the US  .
Better not to hide your Judaism. Otherwise they will suspect you for a spy.

*Seem? How many Iranians do you know personally that currently live in Iran?

Also, please describe how you come to the assumption that the "Jews are quite happy living there" ? Did you observe that somehow

Any Persian jews on DDF from LA or Greatneck? The ones I asked tell me they have cousins in Iran who live a decent to good life and some are even friends with the regime for business purposes, they live anywhere from  normal to comfortable, but all live under a gun to their heads.

 One persian Jew told me his aunt even moved back from LA to IKA while others claim its too dangerous to go back.

Just a tangential data point -- yes, I know that Iran and Iraq are two very different places:

Man who works for me is from Iraq, naturalized US citizen. Just left on one-month trip with his family to see family in Iraq.  He told me that there are zero Jews living in Iraq now.   Google/wikipedia seem to indicate that maybe a few dozen remained as recently as 2013, but now essentially zero.

I know plenty of  Persian Jews in LA. I know some that have relatives there, and have traveled back and forth without any issues. As mentioned  above, the Jews there live well, and since Iranian culture is so different from Western culture, the one's who live there are not looking to move.
