Chewdaism: A Taste of Montreal

The comedic “YidLife Crisis” duo returns with a funny, heimish and enlightening historical and cultural tour of Jewish metro-Montreal centered around its legendary foods. Jamie Elman and Eli Batalion gorge themselves in choice Jewish eateries as they highlight their native city’s Jewish story in insightful, witty conversations with historians, restaurant owners and other lanzmen who kvell over the community’s history as much as the iconic smoked meats and world-class bagels.


Each year, the Hermelin family of Detroit comes together to celebrate Passover by eating gefilte fish, the food that stars in this film. While simple on the surface, Gefilte is stuffed with history and meaning. However, “Gefilte isn’t about the fish”. Instead, it becomes a lightning rod, in which we project all of our feelings about family, identity, tradition, struggle, loss—and as always, love.
