''On being a Francophone Jewish writer in Quebec'' is a first-hand account of what it is like to be a Francophone intellectual in Montreal's largely anglophone Jewish environement. It was published while I held the position of Executive Director of the Canada-Israel Committee's Quebec Bureau, the principal Canadian Israeli lobby.
My Mythe et images du Juif au Québec denouncing misconceptions about Jews and about Israel among Quebec literati had appeared four years earlier. My mandate at the CIC was to promote Israel among the French-Canadian elite. The task was not easy as during that period the war in Lebanon broke out.
''On being a Francophone Jewish writer in Quebec'' is now part of Essays on Quebec nationalism and the Jews.
