BNJC Book Club: Jews Don’t Count by David Baddiel

Join us virtually to discuss books!

This month we have chosen to read David Baddiel's recently published book, 'Jews Don't Count'. Jews Don’t Count is a searing look at why anti-Semitism is often seen as a lesser form of racism, with a particular focus on the political left. To be Jewish, explains Baddiel, is to be subject to the contradictory belief that “Jews are somehow both sub-human and humanity’s secret masters”. Anti-semitic tropes are everywhere – yet, he argues, few of those who consider themselves alert to racism notice, let alone care. Baddiel’s new book is about double standards, specifically those employed by anti-racists when dealing with antisemitism.

Join us for an informal discussion on Baddiel's book and a wider conversation on antisemitism, in all its forms.

About our book club

Our book club is a chance to get together to discuss books with some connection to Jewish culture. Our books will include both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and classic books by British and international authors and established and aspiring authors. Books will be chosen by a vote and we encourage everyone to make suggestions.

Although we aren't able to gather in person, we can still share our love of books virtually! Register to let us know you'll be coming, and we'll send out a meeting link prior to the event. All welcome.
