Manchester Reform Synagogue, a member of the Movement for Reform Judaism, is one of the oldest Reform synagogues in the United Kingdom. Founded in 1857,[3] the synagogue is located in central Manchester at Jackson's Row.

It was built in 1952, using money from the War Damage Commission, after the previous synagogue building was destroyed on 1 June 1941 during the Second World War in the Manchester Blitz.[4] The current building includes a large synagogue, banqueting hall and classrooms.[4]
