Walking Walking Tour of Old Jewish Toronto

May 28 @ 11:00 am - 1:15 pm

Join the DJC, City Shul, First Narayever, and Darchei Noam for a walking tour of one of Toronto’s first Jewish neighbourhoods — the Kensington Market area.  With expert guide Susan Jackson, we’ll discover the fascinating living-history of the Jewish immigrant populations who helped build Toronto.

The tour will begin in Kensington Market and end at Free Times Cafe with the option to stay on for their famous, authentic Jewish brunch buffet.  After brunch, the story of downtown Jewish Toronto comes full circle as we pay a short visit to the nearby FENTSTER window gallery and storefront hub of the grassroots community, Makom, on College Street.  Meet FENTSTER curator and DJC member Evelyn Tauben and be among the first to see a new exhibition by Simon Glass.

Please include your name, the name of your congregation, and if you would like to be included in the Free Times Cafe reservation.  The cost of the brunch is not covered by the tour.

Members:  free | Non-Members:  $6

The tour can accommodate 25 people, with a limit of 6 from each shul.  Please register early so you won’t miss out.

Walking Tour will take place rain or shine!

Departure point will be provided upon confirmation of RSVP.
