The Jewish community in Manchester is considered to be the largest outside the capital of Britain and has more than thirty thousand members.
Jews live mainly in the north of the city. The unofficial capital of Northern England has kosher hotels and apartments, kosher restaurants and deli shops, as well as a significant number of synagogues with a permanent minyan.
The only Jewish museum outside of London is located near Manchester in the Chitam area. It is part of the Spanish-Portuguese synagogue, the oldest in the region built in 1874.
There are also many non-Jewish tourist attractions in the city, however, Manchester is visited by a large number of travelers who observe the Jewish tradition due to the accumulation of a large number of places suitable for religious Jewish life.
