Chewdaism: A Taste of Jewish Montreal
Directed by Eli Batalion & Jamie Elman
Canada | 60 minutes | 2018
An unadulterated foodie delight, Chewdaism: A Taste of Jewish Montreal follows two Montrealers through an entire day’s worth of eating in and around the city as they discover their own personal heritage within the story of Jewish Montreal. Through charming cooking sights, the city’s rich cuisine is joyfully captured in this visually sumptuous culinary adventure that explores the art and pleasure of preparing and savoring Kosher gastronomic choices largely drawn from localized ingredients. As our guides discover the roots of the city’s Jewish community through a series of classical Jewish eateries, they tell the story of their 100-year-old community, with various guests along the way sharing tales and meals. Chewdaism is as illuminating as it is lively, joyous, and a mouth-watering feast for the eyes and the soul.
A reception with a spread of cold cuts, Montreal bagels, and other delectable treats featured in the film will precede the screening at additional cost. Contact the Miami Beach JCC for more information.
