Jewish cultural sites in Canada

Join Temple Emanu-El on this Jewish heritage tour of Canada! Canada has the 4th largest Jewish population in the world behind the USA, Israel, and France, and it’s the home and native land of Rabbi Vaisberg and Cantor Marer. We will visit Ottawa and Montreal to learn about the history and growth of the Jewish population that began in 1759!  We will experience the sites and the tastes of Canada including some of the most famous Canadian restaurants and shops like Schwartz’s Deli and Montreal Bagel!  There is enough free time to experience the cities on your own to shop, people watch, and enjoy the nightlife in both cities. Join together with the Montreal Jewish community to experience a Canadian Shabbat!  This wonderful Jewish heritage tour will be a memory maker and a great chance to travel with your Rabbi and your community.
