SYNOPSIS

A TAPESTRY OF ICONIC SONGS, DANCES, AND PERSONAL STORIES 
A musical journey celebrating one hundred years of Montreal Jewish history. Performers take us through daily life, historic landmarks, and events that shaped our community such as the early immigration to Montreal, Baron Byng High School, Fletcher’s Field, Expo 67, March of the Living, and more. Iconic songs, dance, and personal stories are woven together to create a rich tapestry of the shared experiences of Montreal Jews through the decades. 

CONTENT ADVISORY  Recommended for all audiences and ages


LISA'S NOTE    

You asked, we listened! Our love letter to Montreal’s amazing and diverse Jewish community continues, as we celebrate with even more songs and stories.
