ARK

Sunday 30 Sep at 11.00 am - 11.00 pm

Should we talk to terrorists?  Terrorism can never be defeated by military means alone. Politicians always say that they will never negotiate with terrorists but in the end they know they have to. Bobby Garson introduces a discussion on the methods and impact of counter terrorism differentiating between different kinds of terror, some highly organised with clear political objectives and others the work of loners and people operating on the fringes of society. Governments have responded in a variety of ways. The question remains: do these varied reactions have any impact? Join us at ARK for a discussion of this important topic.

Refreshments of tea/coffee & bagels available from 10.30 am.

El Gusto.  2011 France/Ireland/Algeria Documentary 1h28 dir: Safinez Bousbia

History tore them apart, music reunited them. El Gusto explores a form of Algerian music that once was popular, but now is in danger of dying out, telling the story of a group of Jewish and Muslim musicians who were separated by history over 50 years ago but were reunited to share, once again, their common passion: Chaabi – the  effervescent popular music of Algeria.

Exploring Truth (at The Elizabeth Gaskell House)

Tuesday 16 Oct at 7.30 pm - 9.30 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:30pm on Tuesday, repeating until Tuesday 13 Nov 2018

Week 1 of a 4-week course, Exploring Truth, with ‘OY’, the Open Yeshiva, run by Menorah and Manchester Reform Synagogue (Jackson’s Row) and facilitated by Rabbi Robyn Ashworth-Steen and Rabbi Fabian Sborovsky.

Join us for guided small group study, discussion and even argument (of the Hillel versus Shammai variety!) on the topic of ‘Truth’. We will range through traditional and modern texts and discuss their relevance today, where the issue of truth is certainly topical.

Study materials and light refreshments will be provided. You just need to come with an enquiring mind and a desire to participate. There is no need to be able to read Hebrew, though those who can do so will be able to enhance their skills.

Venue: Elizabeth Gaskell House 84 Plymouth Grove, Manchester, M13 9LW. This is an attractive venue, in the heart of what used to be a Jewish area in the mid-nineteenth century. There is plenty of free parking in adjoining streets and some spaces in the grounds for those with a need for easy access. Inside the house there is a lift and all the facilities we will use are on one floor.

Charge: £20 for four sessions or £5 per session, including refreshments, payable at the door. Please contact your synagogue if you need to discuss financial assistance. We advise early booking. For enquiries or to book your place, please email Sherry at or ring Jackson’s Row Administrator Mandy on 0161 834 0415.
