Manchester Jewish Museum

Coming Soon

Visit Manchester Jewish Museum

We look forward to welcoming you to our new museum. We connect Jewish stories to the world and to our society. Explore our brand-new gallery and fully restored Grade II* Listed synagogue before stopping in our vegetarian café to sample authentic Jewish recipes.
In February we will be meeting the Shtisel family as we explore Israeli TV drama Shtisel, available to watch on Netflix. Jewish Culture Club is a group for anyone who wants to explore contemporary Jewish Culture – from books, TV, film, music, fashion, art and more!
Our song-writing group is for anyone who has a passion for music-making. We work with musicians and artists to create new music together, inspired by our collection and the artists we work with. Join us for our February taster session – perfect for new members!

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.
