The Left and the New Fight against Antisemitism

It is in this sense that we can understand why JFREJ has chosen to call their pamphlet An Offering to Our Movement. The authors hope to provide both Jews and non-Jews on the left a means to theorize antisemitism that will allow them to confront it confidently in both speech and action, without worrying that they are running afoul of “good leftist” understandings of privilege and intersectionality, or falling into right-wing traps. I think they succeed in this necessary and admirable goal to a great degree, and therefore any criticisms I offer should be understood in reciprocal fashion, as an offering to their offering, for the strengthening of their efforts.
