Are we Queer Jews or Jewish Queers? How do our various identities mesh in sometimes fabulous sometimes conflicting ways? How do we navigate Queer spaces as Progressive Zionists? Let’s explore together with Ben and let’s get to know one another as Ottawa Queer Jews. All welcome to this inclusive and safe space.

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. He is an internationally renowned gay Jewish author, and educator focusing on Jewish identity and historical and contemporary Jew-hatred. A Holocaust scholar for over fifteen years, Ben 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.
