Hamilton’s Jewish community is based primarily in the West end of the city. At its core is Westdale Village, a vibrant, historic neighbourhood and shopping district.
Established in the 1920s, the Village is a highly "walkable" community, bordering the nature trails of Cootes Paradise, a large protected wetland at the West end of the Hamilton Harbour and part of the Bruce Trail.
Westdale was one of Canada’s first planned villages, with work beginning in the 1920s. Today, it remains an ideal residential neighbourhood of quiet, tree-lined streets with housing options to suit a variety of budgets and family sizes.
Home to the Adas Israel and the Hamilton Hebrew Academy, the neighbourhood has several kosher shopping and dining options. Westdale Village is also adjacent to McMaster University and its Innovation Park Research & Development Centre
Just 65 kilometres (40 miles) from downtown Toronto, Hamilton has access to all the amenities of Toronto life while maintaining its unique character and vitality. There are a plethora of attractions in the broader Hamilton area. There is never a dull moment exploring nearby neighborhoods, visiting Museums, theaters & concert halls, taking a breathtaking nature walk or hike, or enjoying a sports game.
Hamilton’s Eruv was established in 1972, by Rabbi Mordechai Green and Rabbi Avrohom Price zt’l, and is comprised of man-made borders.
