Jonathan Sacerdoti

Jonathan Sacerdoti is a broadcaster and journalist, as well as campaigner against antisemitism. He started his career as a TV development producer, later moving into news and current affairs.

Having campaigned for many years on the issue, Jonathan was a founding trustee of the Campaign Against Antisemitism charity. As its Director of Communications, he became its public voice and face on television, radio and in the press. Previously treated as a niche issue, antisemitism was pushed to the top of the news agenda, and started to be discussed publicly by the Prime Minister, political parties and the wider British public.

Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations

Director
Andrew Goldberg
Country
USA
Year
2020
Duration
83 min

A mere decades after the end of the Second World War, Antisemitism in Europe – as well as the USA – is rampant once more. Filmmaker Andrew Goldberg explores four modern manifestations of a centuries-long phenomenon: the far right in America, the far left and the Labour party in the UK, Viktor Orbán’s Hungary and Islamic radicalism in France. Featuring interviews with former leaders Bill Clinton and Tony Blair, and telling stories of both instigators and victims of recent racial attacks, Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations is a powerful reminder that hatred of Jews is still here – and a call to bring an end to it, once and for all.

Followed by a panel discussion with David Toube, Director of Policy at Quilliam; Jonathan Sacerdoti, co-founder of Campaign against Antisemitism; and others.
