Les écoles privées juives à Montréal (1874-1939) : des instances de reproduction identitaire et de production sociale?
Abstract
Between 1880 and 1930, a major wave of Jewish immigration from Eastern Europe transformed the social fabric of Montreal. These immigrants had a strong sense of identity, and were quick to set up private schools, with educational projects that reflected their cultural, religious, social and ideological backgrounds. The author presents the process of forming the Jewish school system in Montreal, between 1874 and 1939, examining both the political will of the community leaders and the social aspirations of the Jewish population. He argues that this network of private schools participated in the creation of a Jewish identity in Montreal, ensuring the continuity of a Jewishness rooted in the "Old World" that the immigrant parents had left behind while adapting to the situation in Montreal and North America.
