Standing in the sprawling new $185 million Jewish community complex just north of Toronto, Taali Lester Tollman sweeps her outstretched arm in a wide arc.

"Just a few years ago," says Tollman, UJA Federation of Greater Toronto's vice president of marketing, "all this was pasture."

Actually it was woodland, but no matter. On the space now stands one of the most ambitious Jewish projects ever undertaken in Canada.
