Chewdaism: A Taste of Jewish Montreal

Comedy duo Jamie Elman and Eli Batalion, two Montrealers on the cusp of middle age, love to joke. And nosh. And joke some more. Then nosh. Chewdaism follows the pair—creators and co-stars of the successful Yiddish-language web series, “Yid Life Crisis—as they discover the roots of Montreal’s centuries old Jewish community by sampling foods from bagels, to babke, to new Jewish fusion. Along the way they share stories with Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews, religious and non-religious, to cook up a delightful haimische guide to the vibrant city.
