In the small Montreal municipality of Outremont, two very different communities live side by side: Hassidic Jews and their French-Catholic neighbors. Intent on preserving their traditional lifestyle, the Hassidim distance themselves from outsiders. The French Catholics respond to their little-understood neighbors with a mixture of curiosity, frustration, and mistrust.

Through evocative personal interviews as well as scenes from daily life, Bonjour! Shalom! examines the complex dynamics involved in this clash of cultures.
