The Literary Expression of the New Sephardic Immigration of Quebec

In the past 50 years, a new Sephardic migration originating from Mediterranean countries, specifically Morocco, has settled in Quebec. This new community was mainly French speaking and had to find its place within the Anglophone Jewish establishment and in the land of the two Canadian solitudes, French and English. Innovative solutions have been found on the institutional level and important cultural events have allowed the expression of artists in the wide spectrum of literature, theater, movie making, music, and arts. The themes, topics, and languages of expression reveal the deep desire to connect the past experiences of the old country, the new reality of Israel, and the religious dimension with the new Jewish, Quebecois and Canadian identity.

Presented by Dr. David Bensoussan at the 2011 AJL Convention in Montreal, Quebec.
