Vol 1, No. 1 Spring 1953
The JQ is a magazine with a London Jewish accent, but with a reach that takes in not just Jerusalem and New York, but Berlin, Glasgow, Hollywood, Liverpool, Margate, Miami, Tel Aviv, and all points in between.
Now in its sixty-fifth year, the JQ presents a vibrant, distinctive perspective on contemporary issues and ideas. Embracing the full richness of Jewish life, culture, and controversy the JQ is known for its fine writing, rigorous thinking, trenchant criticism and openness to debate. In its latest incarnation its also strikingly beautiful.
A magazine, as the Levy’s Rye Bread ads that were once a fixture of the New York subways used to boast, “you don’t have to be Jewish to love. Or to read. A magazine for the rest of us."
"Such a lot of must-reads in each issue and a brilliant choice of themes." - Simon Schama
"I really enjoy the refreshed JC. It's more readable than the previous incarnation and the range of topics is great."
"JQ feels like an intellectual home and I am very much looking forward to the next issue."
Like the previous two issues from new editor D. D Guttenplan, this issue features a diverse selection of features, think-pieces and reviews, on subjects ranging from BDS to Birthright, Art to Artificial intelligence by a stellar roster of writers including Rafael Behr, Linda Grant, Tanya Gold and Simon Kuper.
