After reading about the strong Jewish community in Montreal we wanted to see where it all began. Well, Josh, our guide did not leave a stone untouched. He was a wealth of information and presented it in a conversational manner telling the story of how it began up from where it is now. We walked at a leisurely pace which made it very doable. Told my friends about it when we returned home and peaked their interest.

Our fantastic guide, Josh, took us on a tour of what was once a bustling Jewish neighborhood and now, although multicultural, still honors its past. His narration was filled with historical data, personal anecdotes, and a detailed knowledge of Montreal's Jewish past that brought it alive to all of us. This was definitely a highlight of my visit to Montreal.

Starting at the Jewish Museum of Montreal, we were led through what used to be the Jewish neighborhood, pointing out where certain buildings once stood. There is still an Orthodox Synagogue there, which we admired from the outside. Alice, a Research Associate there, was our excellent guide.

We enjoyed this tour. It's actually a 2 hour tour- not 1 as advertised. Our tour guide josh was very informative. The down side is that the area is now run down and quite dirty which was upsetting to see.
