In Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People, Ben M.

Enabling them to begin the process of defining their own identities as proud Jews through Jewish experience, Jewish history and Jewish values. Jewish Pride is an urgent and essential read.

"Fascinating, inspiring and heartbreaking, a cultural and historical survey of Jewishness in the perilously intolerant new world of the 21st Century that is both exuberant and optimistic, and tragic and worrying." - Simon Sebag Monetfiore

"Jewish pride isn't something we hear about as often as we might like, especially from British Jews, but one man is on a mission to change all that. Inspired by his own experiences with LGBTQ+ issues, young gay writer Ben Freeman seeks to empower British Jews to celebrate who they are in a new book, Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People. It is published by No Pasaran Media, a collective of leftwing activists who aim to give a publishing platform in the fight against Left antisemitism, racism and conspiracy theories. In the book, Freeman seeks to inspire, educate and empower the community to reject the shame of antisemitism imposed on Jews, as well as change perceptions of what it means to be a Jew in the 21st century." - Linda Marric
