Manchester Jewish Museum




Learning Kitchen


£6 full, £5 concession & £4 children (or £4.50 each for families of 4+)

Roll up your sleeves and dust off your rolling pin and join us in making hamantaschen!

As the March festival of Purim approaches we will be baking these sweet or savoury treats, traditionally eaten at Purim. These tiny pastry triangles are packed full of flavour and we will have a range of different fillings you can use.

Our baking workshops are open to children and adults alike to try out baking traditional Jewish breads. Discover the history behind Challah baking as you get hands-on in our brand new learning kitchen. Bring a friend or your family and enjoy baking together.

No experience necessary – perfect for baking beginners. You even get to take home what you bake as well as your own recipe card! (or you can buy your own treats from our café).

What you need to know

Our baking workshops are designed for ages 6+ but all ages welcome. All children should be supervised.

Materials and ingredients will be provided. We use Kosher approved ingredients but the food is not Beth Din supervised. If you have any allergies please email in advance.

Places are limited so tickets should be booked in advance so we can safely manage distancing and capacity. We can’t guarantee that we will always be able to accommodate latecomers.

Tickets for this event include general admission to the museum so feel free to explore our synagogue and galleries or grab some drinks or snacks in our café. Remember, if you have an annual pass or are signed up to our M8 Member scheme you can book on for free.

We ask that people wear face masks whilst in our museum.
