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.

This month we will be discussing Victor Esses’ new show The Death & Life of All of Us. Performed at the museum on 14 April, this work in progress is part documentary theatre, part gig and is a reclaiming of those stories others would rather erase. A journey into shame, family and intergenerational trauma; a celebration of complexity, imperfection, truths and untruths, humanity. If you regularly attend the museum’s Jewish Culture Club, you are entitled to free tickets for Victor’s show. Please contact Gemma on the below email.

If you’d like to find out more about Culture Club, or want to join us on 11 May, please email Gemma on: gemma@manchesterjewishmuseum.com
