Jewish Life in Toronto

Toronto is one of the largest Jewish communities in North America. With over 200,000 Jews, Jewish life is thriving. For a complete directory of the Toronto Jewish community, please click here Jewish Toronto Directory.

U of T is in the downtown core, which is full of Jewish life. We are steps from the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre, and are surrounded by tons of great synagogues catering to students and young professionals.
