Jewish Museum proposed to house tolerance centre

Manchester Jewish Museum could become the home of a new national tolerance centre. The proposals, still at a very early stage, are for a centre to be built at the Cheetham Hill road site, where visitors would be taught how to challenge racism and respect other cultures. Museum director Stuart Hilton said: “We will need a great deal of luck to make this happen and until we look at feasibility studies, we don’t know how much it will cost."
