Been bullied?

The Jewish community has a problem with intra-communal bullying, both online and in real life. This bullying is frequently targeted against young, female, converted, black, Progressive and/ or left-wing Jews, and can take many forms:

  • Namecalling
  • Nazi analogies
  • Stalking
  • Doxxing
  • Vexatious complaints to employers
  • Unsolicited contact with family members
  • Defamation
  • Delegitimisation of Jewish status
  • Homophobia
  • Antisemitism (yes, really)

If you have been the victim of any of these forms of bullying, or of any other unwanted behaviour that makes you feel humiliated or unsafe, I would urge you to speak with your congregational rabbi: they are there for you.

However, if you instead or also would prefer to speak with me – as someone who understands the technology, the politics and the feelings that Jewish communal bullying can evoke – then I am also here for you. Please feel free to get in touch in confidence.

If you are in immediate danger, call 999.
