The 50th Anniversary of the UJA Walk with Israel on Victoria Day, May 20, 2019 is shaping up to be our most exciting event ever!
In honour of this special milestone, the Walk is moving back up North to its roots in the heart of the Jewish community along Bathurst Street in North York. The celebrations will continue all day long as a one-kilometre stretch of Bathurst closes to traffic for the first-ever Bathurst Street Fest!
You can drive, bike, take public transit or walk as long as you arrive at Earl Bales Park by 9.00 a.m. in time to join in the fun! Remember to leave yourself lots of travel time as there may be heavy traffic and several street closures to accommodate 20,000 people and the new Walk route.
