STOP PRESS AUGUST 2016: Plans are afoot to rebuild Manchester Reform Synagogue as part of a new “state-of-the-art” redevelopment of the area. Jackson’s Row will be turned into a ‘world class’ new neighbourhood with the Synagogue at its very heart, surrounded by luxury flats, offices and shops – as well as a five-star hotel. This is a joint venture between former United star and the Manchester City Council. The Town Hall’s executive agreed the development’s ‘principles’ at its latest meeting.
