Title
Yiddish in Montreal: The Utopian Experiment
Abstract
The author argues that the Montreal Yiddish intelligentsia of the early twentieth century, a tiny group of secular Zionists, embarked on a bold utopian vision to foster the Yiddish language and culture in the city through a Yiddish press, a Jewish public library, a Vaad Ha’Ir, afternoon and day schools, a teacher’s seminary, amateur Yiddish theatre groups, summer camps and book stores.
