Our tour was led by Cassandra and the group was small with 8 people. We learned about Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe who fled the pogroms and settled around Boulevard Saint Laurent. Schwartz's Deli and Main are nearby. We arrived at 1:30 and were seated at 2:00 and finished in time for the 3:00 tour.

The guide, Ben, was personable and well informed. We did a lot of walking in the vicinity, learned of the original purposes of various buildings, and picked up a lot of local Jewish history along the way. A good way to spend a couple of hours. We recommend going into Fletcher's Cafe, the meeting place, having a St. Viateur bagel, browsing the books and exhibit, and chatting with the young folks who work there.

Montreal Jewish History Walk

We went to meet at the Jewish Museum which is nothing but a storefront without anything Jewish on display, only things to purchase. Our guide was a young woman who had a spiral notebook with pictures to display.. We walked in pouring rain and saw old buildings from the outside. The guide told us what the buildings used to be when the Jewish population lived in that part of Montreal. It was a waste of time and money.

Our guide was a young student-Ben. Gave an very good, informative, interesting history of this part of the city as it was when it was the Jewish Quarter. The history of the different ethnic groups of Jews who lived here was very interesting. Well worth the hour and one-half walk.
