Monkland village is located in one of NDG’s trendy, up and coming neighborhoods. A magnet for young professionals, the area’s quaint streets come alive with cafes, boutiques and bookstores. The NDG area also features Concordia's Loyola Campus, a primarily English-speaking Liberal Arts College, with strong Science, Commerce and Engineering Departments.

NDG is home to a large number of stores, offices and homes owned by Jews from all walks of life. Chabad’s arrival has already created a positive stir and ushered in a revival of heritage and spirituality. The time is ripe for Jewish NDG to blossom.
