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.
