Let's pay a visit to the Manchester Reform Synagogue on Jackson's Row in the city centre. In Hebrew, Rosh Hashanah means, literally, "Head of the Year," and as its name indicates, it is the beginning of the Jewish year. The coming year in the Jewish calendar (which starts 29/30 September) will be 5772.
The Manchester Reform Synagogue was founded in 1857. On the 1st June 1941 during the World War II blitz of Manchester the synagogue was bombed and lost its building as well as most of its records and treasured possessions. In 1949, compensation from the War Damage Commission allowed the congregation to purchase the present site and build this Shule in Jackson’s Row, which opened on 29th November 1953.
