Holocaust Study Day

Menorah Synagogue, 198 Altrincham Road, Sharston, Manchester, M22 4RZ
Thursday 9th November 2023

Join the Menorah Synagogue and The Council of Christians and Jews Manchester the 24th Holocaust Study Day.

The half-day programme will include news insights and inspiring narratives from Christian and Jewish experts, as well as personal testimonies of the Holocaust.

Complementing the National Holocaust Memorial events in January, the study day takes a primarily religious viewpoint, and strikes an optimistic tone for the future.

As always, the session aims to be a stimulating, informative, and often spiritually satisfying morning which is a real contribution to inter-faith relations.

The study takes place on Thursday 9th November between 9.30am and 12.40pm at the Menorah Synagogue in Sharston, Manchester.
