The Pape Avenue Cemetery was established in 1849 and is Toronto's oldest Jewish cemetery. It is now owned by Holy Blossom Temple. Buried in this cemetery are many of Toronto’s earliest Jewish residents. By examining their individual lives, both the hardships and the triumphs of this formative period are revealed. The tour also explores the art and tradition embedded on these early Jewish burial stones.
