About the Tour

We’ll visit the area’s many schools, yeshivas, and synagogues, including Congregation Habonim Toronto, founded by Holocaust survivors; and the iconic bakeries and kosher restaurants like the United Bakers Dairy Restaurant, where a lunchtime meal has become decades-long Jewish family tradition.

This tour will be led by Emerging Historian Avi Margolis.
