Jewish Culture Club at Manchester Jewish Museum, Cheetham Hill, 10 November 2021, free entry - Visit now

Manchester Jewish Museum truly understands that culture is something to be lived, shared and experienced rather than just read about or viewed through artefacts. In their Jewish Culture Club you’ll explore culture through books, film, tv, music, art, food, fashion, theatre or any other cultural works you find interesting. The club is open to anyone, whether you’re Jewish or simply interested in learning and meeting some new people.

Culture is a living thing and needs to be fed with conversation between groups of passionate people.

Meetings take place on a monthly basis at the Manchester jewish Museum and will be hosted by Eliora Goodman and Demi Franks alongside two members of the Museum’s programming team, Gareth Redston and Gemma Meeks. Each meeting will have a focus on a particular cultural work, whether that be a graphic novel such as Carol Issacs ‘The Wolf of Baghdad’ or mainstream television such as the hit Channel 4 show Friday Night Dinner. As a group you’ll discuss the work, it’s relation and relevance to Jewish culture in the present day and exchange stories or experiences that relate to it.

Jewish Culture Club is a space where people can come together to learn from each other and celebrate the best Jewish cultural offerings from contemporary makers and artists to historical works. Often, the themes will be based on the programme of other cultural happenings at the museum, so you can interact with the subject matter before the meeting. Culture is a living thing and needs to be fed with conversation between groups of passionate people. It needs opinions to be shared and scrutinised, thoughts and theories about cultural works to be aired and the passion of the audience to match the determination of the performer. This is what Jewish Culture Club can do.

Since reopening the Jewish Museum has created an exciting programme of hands-on activities. Check out their website for more details of how you can get involved.
