Pro-israel Magazine Launched

January 5, 1973
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A new monthly magazine published by the Canada-Israel Committee will attempt to achieve “a spiritual rapprochement” between the people of Quebec and Israel by presenting “the varied aspects of the cultural, artistic, economic and social life of Israel across impressions gathered by Quebecers who visited Israel,” according to an editorial in the magazine’s first issue dated Dec. 1972.

The French-language publication, “Regards Sur Israel,” whose editor-in-chief is Michael Solomon, Montreal correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, claims to be the first magazine in North America in which prominent non-Jewish French Canadian poets and writers deal favorably with Israel. The editorial states that it is also the intention of the magazine to encourage those who have not yet gone to Israel to familiarize themselves with the ancient-new culture and social experiments in the Jewish State.
