    What to Expect
    A hub of Jewish culture since the 1920s, Mile End was home to cantors and community organizers as well as poets and politicians of all stripes. Mile End has been a center of the Yiddish language for nearly a century, first with its left-leaning Jewish schools, libraries and social clubs, and now with dozens of Hasidic synagogues, yeshivas and storefronts.

    On this historical walking tour, travel through the parks, streets and back lanes of the Mile End, tracing the evolution of Montreal’s Jewish literary, musical and culinary culture exhibiting the diversity of Jewish life in this unique neighborhood.
