Join Ed Glinert, Manchester’s leading historian and most prolific tour guide, an expert on Jewish history and religion, on Sunday, the 22nd of October, for the only FREE tour of Manchester’s old Jewish ghetto, to find old synagogues, the building that was the centre of world Zionism, to hear about Nathan Mayer Rothschild, Oliver Cromwell, Robert Maxwell and Karl Marx. (Two of those weren’t Jewish. Which two?) .
We start at 2pm from the wallmap in Victoria Station, where thousands of Jewish immigrants from eastern Europe arrived some 120 years ago fleeing persecution and seeking a better life – in America. So why were they in Manchester? Ah!
