Reclaiming our Story: The Pursuit of Jewish Pride
Founder of the modern Jewish Pride movement, a Jewish leader, a Jewish thinker, and a Jewish educator, Ben M. Freeman is the author of Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People and Reclaiming our Story: The Pursuit of Jewish Pride.
Freeman educates, inspires, and empowers his Jewish readers to look inside themselves—with empathy and without shame—to identify their own experiences with internalized anti-Jewishness so they can reclaim their Jewish stories, ultimately moving from prejudice to pride.
He is an internationally renowned gay Jewish author and educator focusing on Jewish identity and historical and contemporary Jew-hatred. A Holocaust scholar for more than fifteen years, Freeman came to prominence during the Corbyn Labour Jew-hate crisis and quickly became one of his generation’s leading Jewish thinkers and voices against anti-Jewish racism.
