Eran Cohen and Keziah Berelson lead a four-part series on the origins and manifestation of antisemitism in the UK. Drawing on contemporary and historical sources, TWT’s antisemitism reading group examines the role of antisemitism in modern Europe. The series takes a deeper look at the structural role antisemitism plays in society, looks at the ways antisemitism intersects with other forms of oppression and proposes the means to combat it.


Keziah is a community engagement worker and Jewish Labour Party member.

Eran is a Jewish Labour Party activist.
