We’ll be posting Canadian Jewish events here as they come up. If something is happening in your neighbourhood that you think we should know about, feel free to contact us!
From Lindsey Jackson and SJ Kerr-Lapsley:
As your ACJS Programming Co-Chairs and Graduate Student Liaisons, we have planned 16 months of local Canadian Jewish Studies programming in Montreal. Our intention was to create programming that brings together scholars, students, the local Jewish community, and the general public to explore the diversity of Jewish life in Montreal, and we’re hoping that this will inspire future programming in other cities across the country. This year’s activities include walking tours, a cooking workshop, academic talks, community workshops, a film screening, and a reading group, with an emphasis on the experiences of Jewish women, Sephardim and Mizrahim, and queer Jews.
Our first event is the Museum of Jewish Montreal’s new walking tour, Sephardic Spaces: Reshaping Jewish Montreal, on Sunday September 17th at 12:00pm. This two hour walking tour explores Sephardic history and experiences in and around Côte-des-Neiges/NDG, and tickets are $12 ($6 students and children). There are only 25 spots available, so be sure to sign up early in order to secure your spot. If you are interested in attending, please fill out this Google Form by September 10th at 12:00pm EST.
