The Pub Quiz Without a Pub! - Evening of Sunday 26 February 2017 at 7.30pm

We will be holding our second annual quiz night on 26 February.

We learned last year that since we are the Muslim Jewish Forum, some possible competitors were deterred because they thought all the questions might be about religion! That is not so. Think of this as the pub quiz without a pub!

The quizmasters will again be the dynamic duo of Jonny Wineberg and Steve Pearlman.

Like all of our events, the quiz is open to people of all faiths and none. Teams of 6-8; either enter your own team or we can allocate you to a team.


Sunday 26 February at 7.30pm


Manchester Multifaith Centre, 2'nd Floor, Ada House, 77 Thompson Street, Manchester, M4 5FY. Map at this link.


£5 per person, pay on the night


Light refreshments

Annual picnic - Sunday 23 July at 13:00

We will be having our annual picnic in Platt Fields Park in Manchester. This a big park. The precise location will be the picnic area, next to the lake, south of the Bike Hub. If you enter the Park via Mabfield Road, there is a car park near the picnic area. See the map below.

The date is the same day as the Manchester Mela, which creates a wonderful atmosphere in another part of the park a few hundred yards away.

There is no need to book.

Bring your own food and be ready to share. Kosher or meat-free food works best, as it maximises the number who can eat it!


Asian meal - Sunday 17 September

We will be having an Asian buffet meal in the evening. More details to follow.

Twinning event - Sunday 19 September at 19:30

For several years the Forum has supported the "Global Weekend of Twinning" to bring together Muslims and Jews by twinning mosques and synagogues, organised by the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding in New York. Our event for this year is still being finalised, but the basic details are below.

This event is always an excellent opportunity to meet new people from different backgrounds, and to learn that much more unites the citizens of Greater Manchester than divides us.

Salford Civic Centre, Chorley Road, Swinton, Salford, M27 5AW. Map below.



Kosher cakes, fruit, tea and coffee will be provided.


The event is free to attend.
