Title
French Separatism: Its Implications for Canadian Jewry
Abstract
An essay on the dilemma that faced Quebec Jews, most of whom were living in Montreal in the early 1970s, as a result of French Canadian nationalism. Forced into reluctant Montreal English Protestant schools boards when they were rejected outright by Catholic school boards, Jews integrated or allied themselves, for the most part, with Quebec's Anglophone community. By the 1970s, because of Quebec's ever-strident language laws and growing Québécois nationalism, Jews were being told that they should now integrate into the Francophone community. The author draws parallels with similar incidents faced by European Jews in the nineteenth and early twentieth century.
