Our Credo Was
Jewish Quarterly aims to provide a voice for Jewish students on campus. We are a forum for capturing diverse viewpoints and highlighting the struggles, achievements and perspectives of Davis's Jewish community. Jewish Quarterly strives to inform, educate and entertain while fostering a sense of community on campus. Jewish Quarterly is published at the very least once every quarter, and accepts any submission pertaining to the Jewish community to be evaluated for publishing.
Jewish Quarterly History
- Jewish Quarterly was established in 2001 by Lee Weissman.
- Prior to the establishment of the Jewish Quarterly, there was another Jewish newspaper on campus, named Koleinu (our voices).
About once a year, someone comes up with the great idea of trying to publish the Jewish Quarterly that year. If they're lucky, they publish one issue that year. That would-be editor usually has a lot of trouble generating interest from writers. I have said several times, to several editors, that to generate interest in the Jewish Quarterly, you need to have a big meeting on a week night, with pizza and attract writers, throw around ideas, and make it clear that this paper is going to go somewhere. They never really got that formula down. I hope the Jewish Quarterly takes off this time. — KenBloom
- Last quarter previous Editor-in-Chief Michelle Feder organized a group meeting at Jamba Juice to discuss ideas regarding Jewish Quarterly. The meeting was funded by the Hillel House in Davis and was held on a week night. Ken Bloom, who had expressed interest in the publication as well as the meeting, was not present that night for reasons unknown.
- Maybe I'm wrong about exactly how to generate interest. — KenBloom
