May: ‘Rough Diamonds’
JewishCulture Club



Manchester Jewish Museum Cafe



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 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.

“There’s yet another Netflix show about Orthodox Jews – but this one is full of Thrills” writes Mira Fox for Forward News.

Rough Diamonds is Netflix’s latest drama centred on a Haredi Orthodox family that runs a business in Antwerps’s famed diamond district. The show is drawing comparisons with the hit series ‘Shtisel’. But what is it that makes Netflix keep coming back for more? What is it about the Haredi community that has now become so fascinating in mainstream culture? Bring yourself and an open mind and join us at this month’s Culture Club as we discuss all this and more.
