Jewish Heritage Trail Walk

Jewish Heritage Trail Walk - 10th September

Dear friends,

Manchester CCJ would like to invite you to a MANCHESTER’S JEWISH HERITAGE TRAIL WALK on the afternoon of Sunday 10th September. See below and the attached flyer for more information. Register early to avoid disappointment! There are only 20 places available. First come, first served!
Best wishes,

Francesca Frazer-Davies 
Hon Secretary
CCJ, Manchester branch
Manchester Council of Christians and Jews

invites you to a fascinating heritage trail  walk through the old Jewish quarter around Cheetham Hill Road on the afternoon of Sunday 10 September.  Two knowledgeable Manchester Jewish Museum guides will take you to, and explain about 20 Jewish heritage landmarks in a compelling journey that begins at the newly extended Manchester Jewish Museum and restored Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue of 1874, on Cheetham Hill Road.  The trail will last from 2.00 to 4.00 p.m. – and will be in memory of Mr Merton PAUL, local historian and guide, who conducted heritage trails for over 30 years.

The Trail will begin at Manchester Jewish Museum.  You will be welcome to arrive any time from 12 noon to enjoy a visit around Museum and Synagogue first, and visit the small cafe, though this might get very busy!  There will also be a Question and Answer session with the Trail Guides at the Museum between 4 and 5 p.m. once the journey has been completed.

Museum entrance for members of the group taking part in the Trail will be £5 per person, payable to the Museum on the day only.  There is no charge for the Trail itself, but donations will be welcome for Cancer Research, in memory of Mr. Merton Paul, who designed and led many afternoons like these.

If you want to take part, please register early.

There is room for just twenty people.  First come, first served!

If nearer the time you are unable to attend, please advise Manchester CCJ as soon as possible so others can take your place.

There is disabled access into and within the museum.
The walk will be at a steady pace but over many uneven pavements, 

and roads are to be crossed with care, together as a group.
