Antisemitism, Racism,
and the Limits of Diversity
Keith Kahn-Harris
author & sociologist

Interfaith Glasgow

Keith Kahn-Harris will reflect on the evolution of antisemitism, why there is so much disagreement about how it is defined, and what the "strange hate" of antisemitism tells us about racism and the challenge of living with diversity.
As a practicing Jew, Keith will also reflect on the Jewish concept of Teshuva, suggesting that this can enrich our understanding of repentance and forgiveness in ways that are relevant to discussions about racism and antisemitism.
After hearing from Keith there will be time for discussion with people from different backgrounds in breakout rooms where you'll be invited to share your own perspective and take time to listen to others, before an extended Q & A with our speaker.

Being Jewish in Scotland
Scotland’s Jewish community dates back as far as the 1700s. Small in number until the late 1800s, it grew to around 20,000 during the 1930s and 1940s, with the last phase of immigration driven by the flight before and during World War Two. Then, as now, there are Jewish people living in every local authority of the country. The population remains vibrant but has shrunk to around 6,000. This programme tells their story through a series of intimate, contemporary portraits.
