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.
