Maria spelling/pronunciation: Back in the 1800s, the English pronounced Maria the way we would pronounce Mariah: "ma-RYE-ah".

Ontario Heritage Foundation: Knesseth Israel Synagogue

"Jews began to settle in West Toronto in the late 19th Century, attracted, as were others, by the industrial and commercial opportunities generated by the nearby railway junction. Although some undoubtedly found employment at the Heintzman piano factory, most were artisans or proprietors of small shops. Some engaged in peddling and junk collecting, while others worked at construction. The majority were immigrants from Poland and Russia. ...
Maria Street seems to have had the densest concentration of Jewish residences and family names appear which still have a connection to the Knesseth Israel Congregation, “The Junction Shul”: Alexandroff, Goldstein, Greenblatt, Kronis, Tanenbaum, Usprich, to name just a few. "
