Manchester Jewish Museum Learning Studio
Are you interested in exploring contemporary Jewish Culture? Do you like to share and discuss ideas? Do you want to meet new people and discover new things?
Jewish Culture Club is a group for anyone who wants to explore contemporary forms of Jewish Culture – this could be books, TV, film, fashion, music, art, theatre and much more! The group is open for anyone aged 18 and over, whether you identify as Jewish or are just curious to discover new things.
We meet each month to talk about a specific piece of work, this could be a book, a music album, a TV show or film. It’s a great chance to discuss ideas with new people, explore your own identity and discover new experiences of Jewish stories and culture. Our group is hosted by Eliora Goodman, Demi Franks and our own Gemma Meeks and Gareth Redston.
In February we’ll be looking back at Season 1 of Israeli TV drama series ‘Shtisel’, available to stream on Netflix in the UK. The Shtisels are a Haredi family living in an ultra-Orthodox neighbourhood of Jerusalem and reckoning with the love, loss and doldrums of daily life.
Join us to share our experiences of watching the series and to discuss the themes and stories that the series explores.
