BEN M. FREEMAN 

VIA ZOOM

 

Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People, by Ben M. Freeman, an internationally renowned educator, is inspired by his experiences with LGBTQ+ pride. In it, Ben aims to educate, inspire and empower Jewish people to reject the shame of antisemitism imposed on Jews by the non-Jewish world as well as non-Jewish perceptions of what it means to be a Jew—ultimately, enabling them to begin the process of defining their own identities as proud Jews through Jewish experience, Jewish history and Jewish tradition.

Ben M. Freeman is a Jewish leader, a Jewish thinker and a Jewish educator. Born in Scotland, Ben is a gay Jewish author and an educator focusing on Jewish identity, combating antisemitism and raising awareness of the Holocaust.
