    As a Jew who lived in Montreal until last year, I can say that there is a real misunterstanding problem between Jews and French speaking Quebecers. However, I don't believe that this is linked to antisemitism. 80% of the Jews who live in Montreal are anglophones, so I believe that this is more linked to the broader linguistic issue which divides anglos and francophones. The rest of the community, is mostly represented by Moroccans, who speak French, but they are not integrated to the French speaking society. Many of them pursue their studies in English and they tend to stay close to the rest of the Jewish community rather than developping ties with Quebecers (It's normal we live in a multicultural country) . I'd even say that many Quebecers don't even know that there is a French speaking Jewish community in Quebec. In Outremont, the problem is different. The tensions between Jews and gentils, are in this neighborhood quite similar to what you can see between orthodox Jews and secular people in Israel.
