General note

The Jewish Star was established in Calgary, Alberta in 1980 by Douglas and Gila Wertheimer. The publication was an independent community newspaper that offered local, national and international news and commentaries. The Wertheimers also employed a salesperson and office manager to assist in the production. The paper was published simultaneously in Calgary and Edmonton, with different versions for each city. In 1982 and 1984 the Star won first prize in the American Jewish Press Association awards competition for editorial writing. In 1990, the Wertheimers closed the paper and moved to Chicago.
