Storefront Stories May 2019

During the month of May, close to 3000 TDSB students from over 50 schools will go on a historical Jewish walking tour of Kensington Market

Modelled on the OJA’s Stories of Spadina walking tours, and led by teachers at the TDSB’s Toronto Urban Studies Centre, students will take part in an unforgettable experiential learning opportunity. Beginning in the Kiever Synagogue, students will learn about the history of Toronto’s Jewish community and the challenges and opportunities they faced in the early 20th century. One stop will also include an interactive performance curated by the Ashkenaz Foundation.

The tours will be happening M-F with 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon.
