“I first met Ben in 2015 and his expertise on anti-Jewish racism led me to invite him time and again to my university class to speak to my students on the history of Jew-hatred. The response was so positive that I asked him to design a lecture series within the framework of my course on contemporary German society. The depth of his research and spectrum of perspectives that Ben brought to the topic far surpassed what I had expected him to do. And students specifically mentioned “Mr Freeman’s part” of the course in their evaluations to highlight the new things they had learnt about the little-discussed topic of modern-day anti-Jewish racism within Hong Kong academia.”
Dr Tushar Chaudhuri, Hong Kong Baptist University Professor
“Ben M. Freeman is an impassioned, vastly knowledgeable and charismatically engaging educator committed to spearheading a conversation on Jewish pride in an increasingly intersectional world. I have been led by him in his seminars about understanding modern-day anti-Jewish racism, And despite the difficulty of the subject matter Ben always finds a way to empower and galvanise through the gift of knowledge. It is thrilling to experience his mind at work.”
Eve Barlow, Music and Pop Culture Journalist
“Ben M. Freeman’s seminar on antizionism was extremely enlightening. As a queer, 20-year-old feminist Jew I often feel left out as a zionist in liberal spaces, so it’s refreshing to hear someone talk about Zionism as a progressive movement. Often, the definition of Zionism is appropriated by the non-Jewish world so as a Jewish person, it is very reassuring to be reminded of the history of Zionism and that institutionalised anti-Jewish racism targets Israel, as the ‘collective Jew’. Now, I understand how antizionism is inherently anti-Jewish and have gained the knowledge and confidence to call out ignorance. Thank you, Ben!”Camille Green, Jewish Student
