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.

Eran is a Jewish Labour Party activist.

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

Instead, they propose that understanding it as "a reservoir of stereotypes and images that we call on" allows us to approach an understanding of antisemitism that doesn't devolve into an argument about whether or not someone is an antisemite.
