Staying at The Leonx Hotel and need to know the easiest way to get

to Harvard Street, Brookline to the Jewish Quarter.

We are doing the hop on hop off tour, is there a stop that takes us

All the stops on your tour will be listed on their web site. Total distance is around two miles. Green line via the t or a fast $15-18 dollar cab ride.

From Copley Square, take the Green "C" line outbound towards Cleveland Circle and get off at Harvard St. It should be about a 20 minute ride unless it's rush hour, then it could take a bit longer.

Not sure what you imagine, but if you are expecting an actual "Jewish Quarter", you may be somewhat dissappointed. As you get off the trolley at the stop indicated above, you will be in a cluster of upscale shops and cafes on Harvard Street. Among them is one Jewish style deli, Zaftig's. Continue walking down Harvard Street and you pass one large synagogue. Continue a few blocks further, and at a cross street, you come across the Israel Bookshop, Kupel's Bakery, Kobol giftshop, the Butcherie kosher market, and a couple of small restaurants. Quite a bit further down the street is one Jewish funeral home and another meat restaurant. That is pretty much the extent of things that could be easily located by the general public. Most shoppers and residents appear no different from anyone else on the street in this very upscale town. Note that many Jewish people moved to the suburbs decades ago. Boston, and some surrounding towns, have other clusters of housing, around certain synagogues members can walk to within Sabbath religious restrictions, but you'd be hard put to figure out where they are by just looking.

Best wishes for an enjoyable visit.

Yes, there is a large Jewish population in Brookline, but I never heard part of it called the "Jewish Quarter."
