Abstract

The Manchester Jewish Museum has now been open for more than two years. The success of this venture raises issues about other Jewish Museums in Britain and also the possibility of projects linked to more recent immigrant groups in this country. Some of the problems in setting up the Manchester Jewish Museum and the more recent Museum of the Jewish East End are highlighted, but the article concludes that these have not been insurmountable. The recent Jewish Museums have not become ‘dreary repositories for nostalgia’, but are playing their part in reinforcing Jewish ethnic identity and preparing Britain for a successful multi?cultural future.
