Through a significant partnership, we developed with the TDSB, nearly 3000 students (gr. 6-9) from about 60 schools from across the city will be going on the OJA’s Jewish Heritage walking tour of Kensington Market.
The tours include a stop inside the historic Kiever Synagogue and present the challenges and opportunities of living in early 20th century Toronto; to develop awareness and empathy for the Jews of the past and present. We also received a UJA Kultura grant to partner with Ashkenaz who have curated a live performance by a costumed peddler with his cart (developed by Alon Nashman) who will appear on every tour!
