the other side of the Maumee River
Cherry Street with its bridge, and eventually trolley cars was the divide between old and newer Toledo. Modest-income housing developed west of Cherry Street. Here the small Jewish community settled, flourishing for several decades and like a dance, the families moved "round about, back and forth" throughout the various neighborhoods.
Ethnic neighborhoods sprout up close to churches--the Jewish community close to synagogues.
The first street off Bancroft (N. 12th and Canton Avenue) housed two synagogues--B'nai Israel (conservative) and Anshei Sfard (sefardic-orthodox). Beginning in the 1900's, Jewish immigrants moved into the neighboring streets, venturing further west when times were good, returning when forced by harsh economic times.
