Notes
Director of Jewish Community Services Mr. Manuel Batshaw responds to numerous questions regarding the Sephardic Jewish community from North Africa and how they were received by Montreal's community and its leaders. Bensimon's questions suggest a real schism between the two communities and how they saw each other. Batshaw confides about some of the difficulties that both sides had to overcome for a better dialogue and responds to questions about the impact of Maimonides School built exclusively through Sephardic support, the francophone element as to how it effected changes at Jewish summer camps, and other related issues. Some of the sections of the visual interview are missing though the sound is in sync.

Outs of footage from P-1060-27 with Jewish family at JIAS offices. In this material, other families are presented in voice-over sound with lots of images missing. In one sequence, a younger JIAS male counselor lists some of the services the new immigrants can access. They include, among others: housing information on leasing, a drop-in centre for women to help them adapt to new food, shopping, etc., summer camp for children, and information on various religious and secular public schools available for the children. There are also shots of the waiting room and other clients, a receptionist and an older and younger male counselor at work.

Notes
A group of 7 to 8 Moroccan Jewish men at Casa Pedro discuss the pros and cons of various aspects of their experiences in trying to integrate into Quebec society. Much joking. Some, more integrated than others, explain their firsthand accounts. They touch upon the taboo of intermarriage, the specific problems of being seen as Jews versus as Moroccans, the need to find a sense of belonging, comparisons with Ontario's Sephardic Jews who blended in with the English, and some unanswered questions about their place in Quebec, should it become independent. The sequence ends with their playing a video game and walking as a group down a street in the evening. Disappointing both in content and general comprehension, but one or two revealing details can be assumed from this collection of representative Moroccan men.

Notes
Beautiful Moroccan chanting and Hebrew prayers of the minyan gathered for the circumcision. The baby is brought out in the customary long robe by the father and passed to the mohel, the man who will perform the procedure. As prayers continue, the camera zooms in on the tiny penis being prepared. Prayers continue without image and resume with Jacques Bensimon asking a French-Canadian woman for her impressions. Then people eating from a long table of food. Cutaway reel shows the mohel sterilizing his instruments, close-up of the baby, various guests and a bleached-blond woman, presumably the mother, feeding a baby bottle of milk to calm the child. The whole sequence is choppy. More footage of waiting guests, then leaving.

Notes
CKAC outs -- Lison Chocron, Raphael Mergui and Mathieu Rioux of CKAC. Bits and pieces of conversations with many responses cut off. Topics include: the founding of the Jewish community in Quebec, the work of AJCS, which founded the 23 Jewish community groups, Canadian Jewish Congress, the different histories of Ashkenazi and Oriental Jews, the working class background of most Sephardic Jews in Montreal -- this by Raphael Mergui, who contradicts Ms. Chocron's opinion of who constitutes the bulk of Oriental Jews.

Notes
Most of this material is end or start marks for sync sound/camera shot during the Federation (see P-0160-21 and P-0160-22 for fuller clips of speakers). In this reel, there are glimpses of James Dahan, Raphael Mergui, Charles Delmar and re-elected president Elias Malka, who is honoured by the community and awarded a gift of thanks. Some motions are proposed and voted upon, and there still remains a sense of chaotic disagreement between various factions in the community and its speakers. In the smaller Roll 2, Elias Malka, the elected leader of Montreal's Sephardic community, and Raphael Mergui, sociologist and critic of the Jewish establishment, both give their take on the situation of Israel's Sephardim - neither position is in the final film.

Notes
New French Moroccan immigrants study English with teacher in a JIAS boardroom by repeating phrases and exchanging with teacher. A couple also are interviewed in the second half of the film on learning English, reactions to anti-Semitism, the Canadian Jewish experience in Montreal as seen by the two participants. An older woman watches them speak. Some segments of the interviews are missing - they talk about the Sephardic community in Montreal, JIAS, a comparison between the Quebec and Palestinian independence. Also an interview with the English teacher and her sense of the community. (Montreal Catholic School Commission pays for teachers, but JIAS also provides location and convenience for Jewish participants in the area.)
