About the Speaker:
Ruth R. Wisse Is one of the most outstanding Jewish intellectuals in the United States. A Harvard professor for almost 40 years, she specialized in the study of Yiddish literature but her interests far exceeded that speciality. She has become a much sought after speaker on issues relevant to university teaching, the recrudescence of antisemitism, political correctness and the abuse of human rights. Her opinion pieces appear regularly around the world and she is a contributor to the Wall Street Journal. She has many publications to her credit but her book Classic Liberalism and the Jewish Tradition most effectively encapsulates the crisis of the modern American jewish community which has drifted into a progressivism which in many respects is antithetical to jewish teachings.

He was Chairman of the South African Union of Jewish Students and served on the Executive of the World Union of Jewish Students while also publishing and editing various student publications including Mussar and Jewits whilst at university. Leslie supported numerous charities concerned with the defense of western civilized values and wrote a regular blog on issues of deep concern regarding the future of the West.
