  Description     The film  
A Jewish leader from Morocco now living in Montreal explains that he and other members of the francophone Jewish community need to maintain a strong Jewish identity. He believes that attachment to familiar values helps immigrants feel secure in meeting the challenges of the new milieu. The development of this identity should be understood as a basis for participation in the larger society.
