What you'll do

With its first synagogue erected in 1768, Montreal is home to one of the oldest, largest, and most diverse Jewish communities in Canada. Over the course of this immersive, six-day exploration of the city’s multicultural Jewish heritage, we’ll delve into traditions from across the diaspora, from Iraq to Morocco. We’ll see firsthand how waves of immigration have continuously shaped the city and its colorful tapestry of Judaism, touching upon local Ashkenazi, Sephardic, and Mizrahi experiences. We’ll visit urban and rural communities alike, chat with local rabbis and historians, and sample extraordinary delicacies like meze, falafel, and rugelach—all the while exploring the nuances of what it means to be Jewish in Montreal. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Montreal are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
