Born in Scotland, Ben is a gay Jewish author, internationally renowned educator and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion specialist focusing on Jewish identity, combatting Jew-hatred and raising awareness of the Holocaust. His first book, Jewish Pride: Rebuilding a People, was released in February 2021. Currently based in Hong Kong, Ben now heads up the Humanities Team at an American International School and lectures on antisemitism at Hong Kong universities. Through his work, he aims to educate, inspire and empower both Jewish and non-Jewish people from all over the world.

Inspired by his experiences with LGBTQ+ pride, Ben Freeman aims to educate, inspire and empower Jewish people to reject the shame of antisemitism imposed on Jews by the non-Jewish world as well as non-Jewish perceptions of what it means to be a Jew. Enabling them to begin the process of defining their own identities as proud Jews through Jewish experience, Jewish history and Jewish values. His book, "Jewish Pride" is an urgent and essential read. Join an intimate conversation with this author.
