In Toronto, the "old" Jewish neighborhood was located west of downtown, centered along College St., around Spadina Ave. and Bathurst St., which included Kensington Market and was near the garment industry on Spadina. In the postwar years, the Jewish community began moving en masse up Bathurst, into the wealthy district of Forest Hill and the suburb of North York. In the 80s and 90s, the new suburb of Thornhill took off which today has the highest concentration of Jews.

Basically, Bathurst St., from St. Clair Ave. to past Highway 7, has a very visible Jewish presence.

The vast majority of Jews live in the northern "favored quarter" (particularly the western edge of it near Bathurst) or in the heart of the city. Very few live in the eastern or western suburbs.
