The publication of “The Reflex,” a new American Jewish monthly in English under the editorship of Dr. S. M. Melamed, was celebrated at a gathering held Wednesday night at the Theatre Intime, 127 Riverside Drive.
The first issue of “The Reflex” will appear on June 15. The celebration, in which the directors of the Gilboa Publishing Company, which is issuing the magazine, participated, gave occasion for a discussion of Jewish conditions in the United States and Europe.
Dr. A. J. Rongy, president of the publishing company, opened the gathering; Carl Sherman presided. The speakers voiced their satisfaction at the appearance of the new journal, which was welcomed as filling a long fell need for a thorough discussion of Jewish problems.
The first issue contains articles by Dr. A. Coralnik, E. C. Lindeman, Maurice Samuel, Leo M. Glassman. Prof. Franz Oppenheimer, Dr. Max Raisin, Dr. Melamed, and others.
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.
