      Bari Weiss - Festival of Ideas at Waterstones

      On 27 October 2018 New York Times writer Bari Weiss childhood synagogue in Pittsburgh became the site of the deadliest attack on Jews in American history. For most, the massacre came as a total shock. But to those who had been paying attention, it was only a more violent, extreme expression of the broader trend that has been sweeping Europe and the United States for the past two decades.No longer the exclusive province of the far right and far left, anti-Semitism finds a home in identity politics, in the renewal of America first isolationism and in the rise of one-world socialism. An ancient hatred increasingly allowed into modern political discussion, anti-Semitism has been migrating toward the mainstream in dangerous ways, amplified by social media and a culture of conspiracy that threatens us all.Bari Weiss called by Vanity Fair a liberal humanist whose guiding principle is free expression in art, love, and discourse makes a powerful case for renewing Jewish and liberal values to guide us through this uncertain moment. She delivers an urgent wake-up call exposing the alarming rise of anti-Semitism and explains what we can do to defeat it.This is an event in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.
