Canadian Jewish Outlook Collection

  • CA JMABC A.2016.007
  • Collectie
  • 1964 - 2016

Collection contains Issues of the Canadian Jewish Outlook magazine dating from 1980-2016. This collection also contains an anthology of issues dating from 1963-1986 as well as various publication receipts, textual clippings, and photographs collected by the magazine for potential issue content.

Outlook was founded in 1963 and published its final issue in spring 2016. Outlook’s editor was Carl Rosenberg, and managing Editor was Sylvia Friedman. “Outlook Magazine is an independent, secular Jewish publication with a socialist-humanist perspective.” In their fifty year recapitulation article “EDITORIALLY SPEAKING: Fifty years—looking back, and ahead” (2013) the magazine stated that:

“It is important to interpret the word “progressive” broadly and to give expression to various points of view, from centre-left to those further left; left Zionist to anti-Zionist; etc. However, it is also important to maintain core values different from the Jewish mainstream—to be un-apologetically progressive.” (p.3)

Outlook proudly states they “provide a home for…Yiddish language and literature,” with an emphasis on supporting Yiddish women writers. They also include Jewish and Israeli voices of dissent in their magazine, which they believe are voices often ignored and marginalized by the Jewish establishment. Outlook (2013) is also not afraid of providing commentary on controversial topics with works such as the “symposium in the March/April 2013 issue, “The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising Seventy Years Later: Reflections on Memory,” and more recently in our September/October issue, “What Does Judaism Mean to Me?”” (p.3)
