Stories and Contributions of the Jewish Community
The exhibition highlighs how the Jewish community has participated in the city’s growth and development during the 20th century. It features remarkable achievements in a variety of sectors—architecture, heritage preservation, health and science, human rights, business, the arts and culture—that have benefited, and continue to benefit, all Montrealers.
Shalom, a word symbolizing openness to others and friendship! The history of Montreal’s Jewish community reflects the strength of its traditions and centuriesold roots here. Nourished by a fertile cultural and intellectual climate, its many significant achievements attest to a desire to work together and help one another.
Come discover the stories behind these important contributions! Full of personal reminiscences, videos and photos, the exhibition features five different thematic zones: Living Together, Caring Together, Struggling Together, Doing Business Together, Creating Together.
