At an EGM on the 25th July, 2021 Manchester Reform Synagogue members voted overwhelmingly to sell their land and building under plans to redevelop this part of the city by former footballer Gary Neville.

The aim is use the £15m from the sale to relocate to another location in the city to secure the future of the community for decades to come, rather than wait to be part of a five-star hotel and residential tower”.

Manchester Reform Synagogue will remain at Jacksons Row for the next 3 years while the first part of the development at the adjoining old police station site is completed. At that point in time and subject to contract, the sale will be finalised and Manchester Reform Synagogue will have 6 months to move from their current premises.

Dr Naomi Ward, JR Chair, said “We look forward to many conversations with our members over the next few years as we plan to move to a new, sustainable location, fit for generations of Reform Judaism in Manchester. We will continue to keep all members informed and involved.
