Making Their Mark: A Virtual Tour of Historic Jewish Montreal

By Museum of Jewish Montreal
Please note, this is an online virtual tour, not an in-person walking tour! Our virtual tour covers 70 years of history and 10 city blocks, stopping at 8 important locations in the Plateau neighbourhood. We explore the challenges that new Jewish immigrants faced when seeking work, healthcare and education upon arrival in Montreal, as well as the important ways in which they contributed to and shaped the city’s arts, politics and culture. Throughout the tour, guests are welcome to ask questions and engage in conversation with the guide. We use a combination of contemporary photos, archival images, oral histories, and soundscapes to create an immersive experience and we integrate this with discussion to preserve the most important elements of an in-person tour – the social aspect of getting to know a new city with an expert tour guide, or learning more about a city you love!

The guide was excellent and very well spoken. We really enjoyed listening to the history and viewing the photos and map together from the safety of our classrooms and homes for this online virtual tour experience during the pandemic when we could not gather in person.
