Manchester Jewish Museum

Tells the story of the large Jewish population in Manchester. The museum is in the former Spanish-Portuguese synagogue in what was once the heart of the old Jewish quarter. The community has long since moved up the road to Cheetham Hill and Higher Broughton and, in later years, many less Orthodox people have moved to Prestwich, Whitefield and parts of Radcliffe and Sunnybank as well as to some desirable parts of south Manchester.

About Manchester/North

Much of this area falls under the jurisidction of neighbouring Greater Manchester boroughs, particularly Bury. Once such area is Prestwich which has, along with neighbouring Whitefield, to the north, and Broughton Park, to the south (part of Salford), the largest concentration of Jewish residents of any area outside London. Prestwich is also a stop on the Bury bound Metrolink line. Prestwich and its close neighbour, Whitefield, remain areas with strong Jewish communities and are somewhat upmarket.
