BEN FREEMAN & JEWISH PRIDE: REBUILDING A PEOPLE
Time & Location
About the Event
These days we are seeing rising levels of antisemitism and increased social media attacks on Israel. But one man is on a mission to change all that. Inspired by his own experiences as a gay man, Glasgow-born, Hong Kong-residing Ben Freeman wants to empower Jews to celebrate who they are, and one of his first steps was writing the book Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People. A liberal, pro-Israel activist and educator, Freeman is energized to battle antisemitism from the far left and right, racism and conspiracy theories. He wants the global Jewish community to change "perceptions of what it means to be a Jew in the 21st century."
