Contemporary Jewish Mile End
from World War II to today
Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019 – 2:30 pm
This tour will present a lesser known aspect of Mile End. The largest Jewish neighbourhood in Montreal before World War II, it changed from the 1940s onward as various Hassidic Jewish communities moved into the area, replacing most of their more secular predecessors. But the neighbourhood’s Jewish community is more diverse than it seems. The tour takes place at the start of the holiday of Sukkot, providing an opportunity to learn how certain Jewish customs and traditions are observed in Montreal.
