Passionate about Montreal’s food culture? Become a Museum of Jewish Montreal Food Fellow! We are looking for motivated, food-loving individuals to lead our Beyond the Bagel food tours at the Museum. Beginning on May 11th and running until May 29th on a full-time basis, museum staff will train you in the city’s Jewish food culture and history and prepare you to contribute fully to our food-related programming. You’ll explore the evolution of Jewish cooking from its roots as an oral tradition, learn about Ashkenazi and Sephardic food cultures and their impact on Montreal, and discover new ways of thinking about Jewish food.


This is a call for applicants for young professionals and students interested in taking part in the Fellowship. After completing the month-long training, we are hoping to hire Fellows on a contract basis as guides.



Food Fellows will be paid $13.60/hour for their training and there is potential for competitively paid part-time work following the Fellowship.
