Detail Description

Poster announcing the various services available in Toronto for Orthodox Jews. It relates the homilies and lectures to be delivered, educational institutions for boys and girls, kosher food establishments, kosher product information, etc. Orthodox Jewish community life in Toronto is thought to have begun with the influx of immigrants from Eastern Europe in the Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Chevra T'hillim (1883), whose members originated from Russia; and Shomrei Shabbos (Orthodox,1889). In 1899 Beth Jacob, known as the Poylishe Shul, and in 1902 the Romanian synagogue, also known as Adath Israel, began to function. After the turn of the century shtiblech, kleyzlech (small prayer houses), and synagogues proliferated, and by the 1940s, there were close to sixty synagogues in the city of Toronto. By 2011, there were more than one hundred.
