How to Fight Antisemitism

Bari Weiss, Julia Neuberger, Hugo Rifkind, Simon Schama

Jewish Book Week 2020

Bari Weiss speaker
Rabbi Julia Neuberger speaker
Hugo Rifkind chair

Antisemitism, says Bari Weiss, is ‘an ever-morphing conspiracy theory in which Jews play the starring role in spreading evil’; it is centre stage once more. It has existed for more than 2,000 years, the malignant prejudice that never dies. After the Holocaust there was a respite but today it is back, from both the political Left and the Right.

New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss, whose childhood synagogue in Pittsburgh was the scene of a terrible massacre, progressive rabbi and cross-bench peer Julia Neuberger and historian Simon Schama, discuss its resurgence and how to fight back.

Bari Weiss is a New York Times op-ed editor and writer on culture and politics.

Rabbi Baroness Julia Neuberger DBE is Senior Rabbi of West London Synagogue and was the second woman rabbi in the UK. She is a writer, broadcaster and crossbench peer.

Hugo Rifkind is an award-winning journalist who writes columns for The Times, The Spectator and GQ. He is a frequent panelist on BBC Radio 4’s The News Quiz.

Simon Schama CBE, FRSL, FBA is a renowned writer, journalist, broadcaster and TV presenter. He is Professor of Art History and History at Columbia University.

Sponsored by Avi and Alison Goldberg.
