The story of the first immigrant group to British Toronto.

The history of the Jews in Toronto was shaped by events between the 1830s and 1930s. The tour traces the origins, settlement patterns, and often-peculiar problems encountered by immigrant Jews during that period. We will hear of the first Jews in Toronto. The first synagogue and cemetery. The various areas where Jews lived from King Street to the Yonge Richmond area. Then during Victorian times the Ward and then the migration of the Jewish community to the area focused at Dundas and Spadina. Here between WWI and WWII some 45,000 Jews lived with a Jewish Market and over 40 synagogues. This is the area where we will tour. You'll also hear of where the Jewish community is focused today. This Toronto Walking Tour last two hours. Tours begin at either 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. Meet at the southwest corner of Dundas and McCaul Street at the front doors of the Art Gallery of Ontario. Tour cost $30 per person.
