Where do the Jews Live?

The primary Jewish corridor is Oak Street, which has most of the synagogues and kosher restaurants. However, due to the high cost of living in that neighbourhood, few students live there. Students live all over the city, including on campus and the east side of Vancouver. Kitsilano is also a popular neighbourhood for students which is off campus, but not very far.
