CULTURE & HERITAGE

A gardener knows there are two ways to propagate a plant - from a seed or a cutting. Both contain its DNA. Culture and heritage is about propagating the DNA of a people through an ongoing conversation between generations.
— Elaine Steinberg

While Marcel Braitstein’s life story, career and art broaden the heritage he shares with his wife Elaine Steinberg, their joint story enriches the fibre of the socio-cultural fabric of the Vaudreuil-Soulanges region.

Jewish families have lived and worked in Vaudreuil-Soulanges since 1820, yet their stories remain unpublished. Gannaiden aspires to document the socio-cultural history of the Jewish presence in the region and to identify the values the Jewish community shares with local cultures, in particular with other minorities.
