The Federation of Synagogues has continued its expansion from London into Manchester with the addition of its second northern community.
It has taken on Kehillas Kol Yaakov in Prestwich, a congregation of more than 60 members founded two years ago by young professionals who had moved to the area.
The Federation has bought land to build a synagogue and a planning application will be submitted shortly.
KKY founder member Shimon Rose said: "We recognised that the Federation, which has been putting down roots in Manchester in recent years, is firmly committed to promoting Torah Orthodoxy."
The first Federation shul in Manchester, Ohr Yerushalayim, opened in 2010. The movement is also assisting a third community in the city, Ohel Torah, which is expected to join it in the near future.
Federation president Andrew Cohen said that demand for services in Manchester was "outstripping the supply" as the Orthodox population grew.
"We will provide support and shared services to Kol Yaakov to allow them to grow as a vibrant centre of excellence."
