Last week we celebrated Bill Williams' 80th birthday. Bill has been for many years and continues to be an integral part of the Centre. His knowledge about Manchester Jewry is unparalleled and his work on behalf of the Jewish community tireless, as has been well documented. Likewise, the time and support Bill gives to the Centre, and in particular the donation of his library, is greatly appreciated. On behalf of all here at the Centre for Jewish Studies, we wish Bill a very happy birthday.

Tonight, Monday 5 September at 7pm, you can listen to Bill, founder of the Manchester Jewish Museum, being interviewed by Basil Herwald on BBC Radio Manchester's 'Jewish Citizen Manchester' (95.1FM / DAB). If you miss it, you can listen again online for 7 days and we shall put the recording on the CJS website's media page.
