What Does It Mean To Be Jewish?

Ben Freeman and his book, which is worth your time (books.arcdigital.media).

Ben M. Freeman writes that his new book, Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People, isn’t about fighting antisemitism. But there’s no way to understand the Jewish Pride movement the Hong Kong-based Holocaust educator hopes to build without understanding both the history of Jew hatred and its multiple forms. Since Jew hate is what’s historically driven Jews to “warp or change our identities to fit in,” antisemitism is a major theme throughout. 

By extension, Zionism, the movement that supports Jewish self-determination in Jews’ ancestral homeland, figures in Freeman’s book. However, this is not a book about Zionism per se.
