On the Jewish Manchester city centre tour we hear about the surprising Manchester connections with the Balfour Declaration, one of the most important events in Jewish history which legitimised the idea of a Jewish state.

We drop into the Art Gallery to see a magnificent depiction of one of the most poignant Old Testament stories. We check into the Midland Hotel to hear some  ferkakte stories about Chopin, the Schwabes and the Sieffs.

We even head into St Ann’s Church (a church on a Jewish walk noch. Then there’s Jackson’s Row synagogue (before Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville demolish it) and the Town Hall (to meet the man who allowed the Jews back into England). And him below: NOT the first ever Jewish prime minister.
