Manchester Jewish Museum

Coming Soon

This session will be co-hosted by our group member, Adele Markey, who has a passion for all things crafty – from crocheting to card making. Adele will be showing us some beautiful origami techniques to make cards and decorations for Hannukah. So join us for this festive workshop as we make our creations over a cup of hot tea. Everyone is welcome!
Join us as we make some delicious cassola. These sweet ricotta cheese pancakes were traditionally made by Sephardi Jewish communities and many consider them to originate from the popular latkes. Come along to make and eat these tasty Chanukah treats. And try your hand at making some cheese!

Let Culture Set You Free

We are proud to be part of Manchester’s world-renowned culture scene. A city of artists, museums, galleries, theatres, music venues and spaces for making. Welcome back Manchester, we are open once more.


We have a growing community of artists, song-writers, textile enthusiasts, local residents and cultural and community partners.

Our community groups are a great opportunity to meet other people to share stories and cultural traditions – and we are always looking for new members.


Our new museum includes a brand-new learning studio and educational gallery as well as complete restoration of our synagogue, providing the perfect hands-on environment for schools wishing to learn more about Jewish culture.

We are offering two half day workshops: Synagogue & Sabbath and Festivals & Feasts. These can also be booked together as one full day, giving your students the full Manchester Jewish Museum experience.
