Time capsule from 1873 found in museum wall

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

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 synagogue in Manchester they found the capsule buried next to the Museum’s Ark, the chamber which houses the Torah scrolls, filled with synagogue papers, newspapers and some old coins.

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