Friends of The Museum

The History of Manchester Jewish Museum Friends

The Friends of Manchester Jewish Museum organisation was formed soon after the inauguration of the Museum itself in 1985. The aim has always been to support the museum both financially and practically and to this end the committee organises events like Coffee Mornings and Band Concerts. Over the years tens of thousands of pounds has been raised to pay for new equipment and facilities in and around the building.

The Friends has an elected committee and holds its AGM at the Museum each June.

Over the years Friends have organised social outings and have been invited to previews of new temporary exhibitions
