The publication of a new American Jewish journal in English will be started soon, according to an announcement made yesterday by Dr. S. M. Melamed, who will be the editor of the journal.
The magazine is to appear monthly under the name, “Reflex” and is, according to editorial announcement, to be dedicated to “critical opinion and the secular interest of the Jewish people.”
The first issue is to appear on May 20 and is to be a magazine of approximately 100 pages. The publishers of the new magazine are the Gilboa Publishing Corporation, with offices at 95 Madison Avenue, New York City. Dr. A. J. Rongy is president, Carl Sherman, Treasurer, and Jacque A. Rosenblatt, secretary of the corporation.
Dr. Melamed, who will edit the new magazine, is a well known American Jewish essayist and writer in many languages. He was formerly editor of the “American Jewish Chronicle” and “East and West”. Non-Jewish writers of international reputation, in addition to Jewish literary talent, were invited to contribute to the “Reflex”. The subscription will be $5.00 a year.
The Archive of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency includes articles published from 1923 to 2008. Archive stories reflect the journalistic standards and practices of the time they were published.
