Highlights of our work

A contest over a spring exposes Israel’s water apartheid.
How Hungarian Ultra-Orthodoxy found an ally in Europe’s most notorious antisemite.

#JewsForBlackLivesMatter risks reinscribing Ashkenormativity.
A few months ago, Aron Keller spoke to the author and broadcaster Michael Rosen about his new book, ‘The Missing’, and much else besides.
The Board gained prominence through its forthright stance on Labour antisemitism. Its mealy-mouthed response to annexation will condemn it to irrelevance.
