Title
In the Shadow of the Mountain: A Historical Re-Evaluation of the 1988 Outremont Dispute
Abstract
An examination of a what should have been a small municipal affair involving attempts to change a zoning by-law in the Montreal suburb of Outremont in 1988 involving two Hasidic congregations – Congregation Amour Pour Israel and Congregation Munchos Elozar-Munkatz – that would allow the former to construct a synagogue and the latter to retain its synagogue. However, the issue evolved into an anti-Hasidic incident precipitated by some Francophone residents of the suburb and Montreal newspapers. The author offers an historical narrative of the municipal vote to change the zoning by-law, the extent of Jewish organizational involvement, the larger press reaction to the anti-Hasidic stance, and the positions taken by the Hasidim and the municipal officials themselves.
