David Baddiel at Mosaic

Wednesday, April 14

Around 300 people joined our Zoom session to see comedian and writer David Baddiel being interviewed about his new book JEWS DON’T COUNT by Alex Gerlis.

If you were unable to view the event live, you can view the recording here.

JEWS DON’T COUNT is a book for people on the right side of history. People fighting the good fight against homophobia, disablism, transphobia and, particularly, racism. People, possibly, like you.  On the eve of Israeli Independence Day, Jews throughout the world remain an ethnic minority, constantly aware of anti-Semitism.  David is an author, comedian and screenwriter. He has written and performed in highly successful TV comedy shows, including The Mary Whitehouse Experience and Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned. He is the author of four novels as well as six books for children which have sold over 1 million copies.

It is David Baddiel’s contention that one type of racism has been left out of this fight. In his unique combination of reasoning, polemic, personal experience and comedy, Baddiel follows the anti-Semitism he finds in his Twitter feed to the stage, through the media and into politics. He argues that those who think of themselves as on the right side of history have often ignored the history of anti- Semitism. He outlines why and how, in a time of intensely heightened awareness of minorities and the discriminations they face, Jews don’t count as a real minority.  Here is the link to the book
