Explore Jewish Montreal with walking tours

jewish walking tour montrealMuch of Montreal’s history is still visible today in the buildings, streets and alleyways of the city’s older districts, and that includes Jewish Montreal.

A series of walking tours has been developed by the Museum of Jewish Montreal and runs this summer until Labour Day weekend. It’s an opportunity to connect with the past, with the insight of expert guides.

Making their Mark walks through the Plateau neighbourhood and the buildings, or sites, of synagogues, schools, hospitals and cultural centres dating from the early 1900s.

Rabbis, Writers and Radicals walks through the Mile End, with its varied literary, musical, culinary and political traditions.

Work Upon Arrival looks at immigration, working conditions and labour politics, through the life of six immigrants who were involved in the then-thriving garment industry.

Tours are offered in English and French and tickets cost $15. Info: 514-867-5161 or imjm.ca/walkingtour
