Manchester Jewish Museum

Coming Soon

Noga Ritter Trio

Israel born singer-songwriter Noga Ritter and her trio bring their genre-blending music to Manchester for the first time, fusing Hebrew Jazz with global grooves for an electric and soulful musical experience.

Going Deutsch

A one-woman comedic show about relationships, inherited trauma and how much the past shapes the future. Should you ever go back to someone, or something, that almost destroyed you? What if they're sorry? What if they say they've changed? What if they're offering an EU passport?

Emma Smith

One of the greatest voices of the contemporary UK jazz scene. Her recent album, Meshuga Baby, is a nod to her Jewish heritage. The Yiddish word ‘Meshuge’ means ‘crazy’ - a judgment that Smith describes as “so often passed on brave ambitious women that are not afraid express their opinions and showcase their talent.”

Pickle

A hilarious one-woman show about a young Jewish woman caught between two worlds.

Quatuor Danel

The University of Manchester’s internationally-acclaimed string quartet-in-residence, Quatuor Danel, brings their lively repertoire to our historic synagogue with quartets written in memory of lost sisters.

OURS AND YOURS

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.

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 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 from September: Synagogue & Sabbath and Festivals & Feasts. These can also be booked together as one full day, giving your students the full Manchester Jewish Museum experience.
