About Quest

Created in 1965 and relaunched in 2017, Quest is a Jewish literary art journal. The journal, as it was in the 1960s, existed to reflect the age’s “tensions, problems, ideas and achievements.” Although today we are faced with a very different set of circumstances, the imperative to interrogate those circumstances remains unchanged.

“Quest is not a synagogue journal but one sponsored by a synagogue which believes that criticism is preferable to indifference, hostility to apathy and pungent comment to vaporous apologetics.”
