As big as Christmas is, there is always a major void for people who don't celebrate that holiday. Both the Jewish and Muslim communities very well represent Montreal. Unfortunately, there is usually nothing to do for these people during the holidays, until now!
Montreal's top Jewish and Muslim Stand Up Comics are joining forces in an attempt to bring both groups together, to laugh and be very merry. And in an ironic twist, this show will be taking place inside the beautiful 425-seat Gesu church theatre! That's right, a Jewish and Muslim comedy show in a church on Christmas!
The performers include, Eman, Jeff Schouela, Dan Laxer, Faisal Butt, Robby Hoffman, Abdul Butt, and Jessica Salomon.
Going going back back to Cali Cali
Alternative Spring Break to LA

Why Adults Can Love Hanukkah Too
As a child, I didn't love Hanukkah.
Don't get me wrong: The candles, presents (pajamas and pencils were standards), songs, and fried foods all made me generally very excited to be a Jew. And I was happy for any indications around Christmastime that Judaism was yummy and fun, especially since every person I met from Halloween through New Year's seemed to be not Jewish and wanted to wish me a "Merry Christmas" and ask what I wanted from Santa.
So why didn't I love Hanukkah?
Well, I grew up in a home that straddled the Orthodoxy of my grandparents' youth and the membership we held to a Reform synagogue, so things were sometimes a little mixed up. I only got the most basic explanation of Hanukkah: how brave Judah Maccabee helped save the Jews.
