Prepare for the Jewish New Year with a Rosh Hashanah bake-off special – apple cupcakes (with a dash of honey!)

These baking workshops are open to children and adults. Enjoy baking traditional Jewish breads and sweet treats. For Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) it is traditional to dip apples in honey to symbolise hope for the ‘sweetness’ of the new year.

Discover more about these traditions as you get hands-on in the museum’s brand new learning kitchen. Bring a friend or your family and enjoy baking together.

No experience necessary – perfect for those who are new to baking. You can even take home everything that you bake.

Rosh Hashanah runs from Monday 6 to Wednesday 8 September this year. Manchester Jewish Museum will be closed on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 September.
