“The Jewish journey is not just about fighting antisemitism. It is about rejecting the shame of antisemitism. Rejecting the non-Jewish world’s inaccurate definitions of what it means to be a Jew.” So writes Ben M. Freeman in his call-to-arms Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People. Inspired by his experiences with LGBTQ+ pride, the internationally renowned educator sets out to inform and empower the Jewish people by defining their own identities based on Jewish values, experience and history. In conversation with CST head of policy Dave Rich.

In Association with the Jewish Book Council (USA)
