Hidden deep within a cavity wall of the Manchester Jewish Museum, complete with its wax seal intact, lay a glass jar time capsule buried almost 150 years ago.

As builders renovated the oldest surviving shul in Manchester they found the capsule buried next to the Museum’s aron kodesh, the chamber which houses the Torah, filled with shul papers, newspapers, and some old coins.

Early shul minutes show records of the capsule being laid in the cornerstone of the original building around 1873.
