Coming Soon

Songwriting & Poetry Group

In this session we will be working on a new song, which will go inside our new time capsule to mark the 150th anniversary of our synagogue. We have created a new chorus and will be working out how to weave together verses written by the museum’s different communities. This song will go inside our new time capsule to mark the 150th anniversary of our synagogue. Exciting!
Following on from the sold-out 2022 show, Noga Ritter Trio return to Manchester with a newly released album. Come listen to Noga's new songs, tracing influences from her upbringing, travels and encounters and sing-along to the firm favourites. Expect an electric show and get moving to these irresistible sounds!


Join us as we celebrate our 150th anniversary with an exciting programme of events, sharing Sephardi stories from Manchester and beyond.

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 modern building includes a fully equipped Learning Studio & Kitchen as well as an educational gallery. The fully restored 150 year old (former) synagogue provides the perfect hands-on environment for schools wishing to learn more about Jewish culture.

We are offering two half day workshops: Synagogue & Stories and Holidays & Challah. These can also be booked together as one full day, giving your students the full Manchester Jewish Museum experience, through film making, baking and exploration activities!
