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.

This month we will be discussing our live event ‘Friends of Yiddish’ (on sale on our website here: https://www.manchesterjewishmuseum.com/event/friends-of-yiddish/) as well as all things Yiddish and how relevant they are in today’s world.

‘Friends of Yiddish’ is an evening of poetry and Yiddish, hosted by Rachel Lichtenstein, where we will be exploring one of Britain’s foremost but now largely forgotten Yiddish poets Avram Nachum Stencl.

PLEASE NOTE that this Jewish Culture Club meeting, although usually on a Wednesday, will take place on TUESDAY, 13 September.

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.

You don’t have to speak Yiddish to participate in this meeting.

We’ll provide the refreshments, just bring yourself and an open mind!
