1st Chassidic Woman Elected to Montreal Council?

1st Chassidic Woman Elected to Montreal Council?

Two years ago, young Mindy Pollack founded “Friends of Hutchinson Street” to help ease tensions between her own Chassidic community and a group of mostly French-speaking residents who opposed the expansion of a synagogue in her Montreal neighborhood, Outremont (BTW, my brother-in-law, Noah, also lives in Outremont).

Now 24-year-old Pollack is running to join her borough council.

She told La Presse, “The situation has to change, and the best way to change things is to give yourself a voice. The most important thing is dialogue, because without dialogue, we will never find a solution.”

If she wins, Pollack could be the first female Chassidic elected official in Montreal’s history.
