Joseph Finlay, Jewdas, Anti-Semitism Labour Party, UK

We spoke with Joseph Finlay, former deputy editor of the Jewish Quarterly and founding member of Jewdas, to try to understand the anti-semitism scandal going on right now in the UK’s Labour Party.

For Anti-Semtism analysis closer to home, please listen to :

  • Episode 30: On Anti-Semitism in which we spoke with Mark Tseng-Putterman and Tallie Ben Daniel about Jewish Voice for Peace’s new book, ‘On Anti-Semitism: Solidarity and the Struggle for Justice.’ 
  • Episode 36: Understanding Anti-Semitism is another relevant listen. On that episode, we spoke with Leo Ferguson and Aurora Levins Morales about the new resource, ‘Understanding Antisemitism: An Offering to our Movement,’ released by Jews for Racial and Economic Justice.
