Manchester Jewish Museum announces a bold new event season in their newly restored former synagogue. This beautiful space, an 1874 Grade II* listed Spanish and Portuguese synagogue,  will be host to Synagogue Nights: a programme of eclectic events this Autumn ranging from Klezmer gigs and animated graphic novels to theatre performances featuring large scale knitting and an adult twist on Yiddish pantomime.

Synagogue Nights presents a series of live events that celebrate diverse Jewish experiences and explore untold and unexpected stories. It kicks off on Oct 14 with ‘She Seeks Out Wool’ (pictured here).  Sophie Ablett and Klein Blue weave together spoken word and large-scale knitting to tell the personal journey of a family, the relatives left behind and how the past can be woven into the present.

Thu 14 Oct, Manchester Jewish Museum,
