General

The Interactive Museum of Jewish Montreal was founded in 2010, when Montreal’s Jewish community turned 250 years old. What began as a project to map Montreal’s Jewish history has since expanded to include online exhibits, oral histories and online/mobile walking tours.

The IMJM website features online exhibits with written descriptions of key institutions, events, places and people in the history of Montreal’s Jewish life. Each exhibit also features archival imagery and links to further research. Exhibits are intended to give users context about how different elements of the Jewish community’s history fit into the history of Montreal and worldwide Jewish life.

IMJM also organizes events, including lectures, panel discussions and walking tours.
