Coming Soon

The Crafty Corner: Calligraphy!

Our June session will be led by artist and calligrapher Brian Whitmore. Brian will be teaching us the beautiful art of calligraphy, as we look at some of the examples of handwritten documents in our collection for inspiration.
Our Song-writing Group meet monthly to work with amazing composers, singers, writers and musicians to create new music. In this session we will be working on a new song and creating our performance for the Cheetham Cultural Festival, which takes place in Autumn this year!

DISCOVER & CELEBRATE

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

OURS AND YOURS

OUR GROUPS

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.

SCHOOLS & LEARNING

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!
