Overview
Travel back in time to the 1940s and 50s to visit a Yiddish institution that helped shape Jewish identity in Montreal – the Peretz Shule. Telling the story through the eyes of several students who attended the school, this unique tour takes a closer look at the history of Montreal’s vibrant Yiddish community, and the importance the school held for those living in the neighbourhood now called the Plateau. What was taught there? What challenges did the students and teachers face? How did the school impact the broader community? Join us to explore how the Peretz Shule was more than just a school, and how Yiddish was more than just a language.
