Why, after all this time, are we still talking about antisemitism? Can we instead embrace empowerment? In Reclaiming Our Story: The Pursuit of Jewish Pride educator Ben M. Freeman calls for a rejection of the shame of anti­semitism imposed on Jews by the non-Jew­ish world and looks into the long history of internalised anti-Jewishness. In Everyday Hate CST head of policy Dave Rich asks how ‘never again’ has given way to rising hate crime, conspiracy theories and thriving antisemitism and explains how we can all play a part in stopping it. They join journalist Nicole Lampert.
