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 ages 18 and over, whether you identify as Jewish or are just curious to discover new things. The group meets monthly and it’s a great chance to meet and discuss ideas with new people, explore your own identity and discover new experiences of Jewish stories and culture.

In June we will be discussing the popular four-part BBC One television drama series, ‘Ridley Road.’ Based on Jo Bloom’s book of the same name, it is the story of the 62 Group, a collection of anti-fascists who stood up against the rising neo-Nazi movement in Britain after World War Two.

All episodes are currently free to watch on BBC iplayer.

What you need to know

Our Jewish Culture Club is FREE and open to EVERYONE, whether you identify as Jewish or are just curious to discover new things.

We’ll provide the refreshments, just bring yourself and an open mind! We would be grateful if you could book online, but if you’re struggling with it don’t worry – just come to the meeting and we will help you do it!

If you’d like to find out more about our Culture Club please email Demi on: demi@manchesterjewishmuseum.com
