Being Jewish in Denmark Today
Session: Sanne Cigale Benmouyal and Lior Foighel – two young, articulate and media-active Danish Jews who have been very open about their Jewishness – speak with Jonathan Harmat about their thinking, experiences, engagement and strategy in a changing world. Coming to openess from different directions, our panellists will make this an exciting meeting of minds.
Bio: On a personal level, whether I was aware or not, I stepped out of my jewish family history shadow throughout my entire life. On a sociocultural level I used a lot of time to go into dialogue with the public. I’ve been confronted with statements on social media such as “I hope you are going to the gas chamber”. This made me realise that I have to step up against unawareness, prejudices and hatred.
