Philadelphia Premiere

Warning: No calories were counted in the making of this “nosh-umentary.”

In the midst of their own proverbial YidLife Crisis, Eli Batalion (Appiness, Stage Fright) and Jamie Elman (Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm), the comedy duo behind the world’s first-ever Yiddish web series, return to their hometown and discover what they may have known all along: there’s no better way to learn about Montreal’s rich Jewish history than to taste it! Every Montrealer knows that an authentic Montreal food tour is incomplete without a stop at Wolinsky’s and its world-famous neighbor, Fairmount Bagel. And what better way to learn about Montreal Jewish food culture than conversing and sharing stories with local historians, restaurant owners, and chefs?

Pile on the Montreal-smoked meat, serve up a generous helping of chocolate babka, throw in some Sephardi home cooking and hipster culinary fusion for good measure and join Jaime and Eli as they eat their way across Jewish Montreal. A little funny, a little “heimish” (unpretentious and homey) and even a little fattening, if you love food, CHEWDAISM is the movie for you!

Join us before the film for a build-your-own bagel breakfast buffet and mimosas, courtesy of Cooper Spirits!
