Additional Information

Program Series Sponsored by the Abraham & Lillian Heifetz Gruber Family Fund, Manchester, NH.  On Sunday, February 2, 2020 (snow date Feb 9), Temple Israel of Manchester will host “Jewish History of Manchester” presented by local historian John Clayton at the Manchester Millyard Museum. The free public event seeks to engage the community in discussions and learning about the history, contributions and presence of the Jewish Community in Manchester and New Hampshire.


“Manchester and New Hampshire as a whole, has a rich and interesting Jewish past. This is the second one-of-a-kind annual event presented by distinguished experts to engage the entire community in considering timely issues through the lens of shared Jewish and American values,” said Steve Saulten, President of Temple Israel.


The event is open to the public and free of charge, but reservations are required. 

About John Clayton

Renowned local historian John Clayton was recently named executive director of the Manchester Historic Association and Millyard Museum. He previously spent 25 years as a reporter and columnist for the New Hampshire Union Leader, and he is the author of seven books about Manchester and New Hampshire.


John’s “In The City” column was a fixture on the front page of the Union Leader for more than 20 years and won numerous awards, including best local column from the New England Associated Press News Executives and “Best Local Author” from the readers of “New Hampshire” magazine.


John received an Emmy Award for his work with New Hampshire Public Television where he was the long-time host of “New Hampshire Crossroads” and – this is breaking news – tomorrow night, he will be honored by the New Hampshire Humanities Council, along with filmmaker Ken Burns, author Dan Brown and US Supreme Court Justice David Souter, as one of “40 over 40,” citizens who have demonstrated what it means to create, teach, lead, assist, and encourage human understanding in New Hampshire.
