Title
Enclaves ethniques et stratégies résidentielles des Juifs à Toronto et Montréal
Abstract
The author explores the residential strategies developed by different waves of Jewish migrants in Toronto and Montreal since their early establishment in Canada. She points out that tracking the creation of synagogues and centres of worship, as well as Jewish schools, allows us to evaluate their impact on the urban landscape. Where and how were these enclaves built? What were the strategies that have prevailed with each new wave of immigrants to incorporate their culture within these particular landscapes? Whereas religious and ethnic affiliations were essential expressions of identity in those enclaves, French language became the dominant factor of integration for Moroccan Jews in Montreal during the 1960s and 1970s. The paradox of their establishment in the 1960s is that even though most of them spoke French and founded their schools and main institutions in that language, they chose to live within established Jewish enclaves, which were multi-ethnic and Anglophone. The question the author as is: Did religion trump language?
