In 1976, the nationalist Parti Québécois came to power in Quebec and governed the province until 1985. A tense period followed its election within business circles and among the Jewish community. In the midst of this crisis, Victor Teboul’s Mythe et images du Juif au Québec had just been published and it exposed a negative portrayal of Jews in Quebec’s most well-read novels and history books.

''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.
