“I feel very comfortable within the Montreal Jewish community. I grew up in the West Island and feel very attached to it, and my husband grew up in Côte Saint Luc and he’s attached to his community as well. Even though we’ve had different experiences, we both have that same sense of community.
I always laugh because even though we don’t live in either the West Island or Côte Saint Luc anymore, we always seem to end up there. We still do our dry cleaning in Côte Saint Luc. Why? I have no idea! I still do my nails in Dollard. Does that make sense? No. But you just go back to your roots – to your community. That’s where we are comfortable and that’s what home is to us.”
