Rabbi Marc’s A Dash of Drash – Antisemitism, Tisha b’Av and Statistics – Episode 73

Antisemitism, Tisha b’Av and Statistics with Jonathan Boyd is Episode 73 of A Dash of Drash.

The third Jonathan from London is Jonathan Boyd who is the Executive Director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research in London. Jon, a good friend, uses statistics and research wisely and carefully to provide information on the state of the contemporary Jewish communities in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. As Tisha b’Av approaches, when we commemorate destruction and loss, this discussion reflects primarily on what the numbers and research show about antisemitism today.
