The Topical Tuesday series sees guest speakers from the St Paul’s Community share their take on the current environment.
Gideon Falter OP, 1996-2001, Chief Executive of the Campaign Against Antisemitism
In this Topical Tuesday talk, Gideon will be discussing how antisemitism, an ancient hatred often thought to be consigned to history, has adapted and mutated to find support in a modern world that all too often thinks it has been left behind. Gideon will discuss contemporary trends and how to fight this prejudice through the justice system as well as a variety of innovative techniques including social media, publicity, protest and regulators.
Gideon was elected to lead Campaign Against Antisemitism in 2014, soon after its establishment, building it into the UK’s foremost campaigning organisation against antisemitism. Gideon has been at the forefront of Campaign Against Antisemitism’s mass-education work to expose and explain the dangers of antisemitism to the public, appearing regularly in the media to stand up for British Jews. He has been responsible for gathering some of the most renowned lawyers in the UK to devise and execute an ambitious legal strategy that continues to change the law on antisemitism in Britain.
The Algemeiner has awarded Gideon as one of the “top 100 people positively influencing Jewish life”.
